Sorry Alex, you’ll have to be satisfied with just a pic of the gennaker hoisted. It was blowing 17 knots in English bay so I wasn’t going to go out to test things out in those conditions. Waiting for a calmer day. Luff length is perfect and it furled very nicely at the sail loft. Really looking forward to trying it out. I will try and get drone shots on that day, likely post a short video on my YouTube channel and post the link to it here.

Mast crane is whatever the boat came with, not sure if it’s factory or not. Finally took the boat out today! It’s all working flawlessly, gennaker furls like a dream. We were doing 5 (SOG) knots in 7 knots of wind.

Nice. Let us know how the 30 ST winches work—if they are big enough for sail. I wish I had toe rail sheeting tracks. :cry4`

Good to know. My asymmetrical is 800 sq. ft. and I was thinking 40STs when/if I added additional winches. I will keep your experience in mind.

For the price difference I’d go 40st, that way you’ve got headroom in case you ever go bigger.
