Super Snoopy 050 10:29am, 1 November 2009
You could call this forward thinking, but next season I intend to get to grips with the beast of a spinnaker that came with Super Snoopy. Trouble is, I used some long ropes that I found at the bottom of a locker for tying down covers and other ancilliary duties. It was then I realised that they were spinnaker sheets.

Can I have the lowdown on lengths and diameters for general use please (not the hi tech stuff that costs £20 a foot and is stronger than steel)?

I will measure mine when next on board but they are about 10 feet loner than genoa sheets. Had my achilles 9 for 3 years and have made up some spinnaker squeezers to help launch and recover. Made them from old spinnaker.

Many thanks - do you think that you give me (and others) a heads up on the design and dimensions of the squeezer?

Spinnaker sheets and guys shouls be 1.5 times lenght of boat, i.e. 14.5 metres long. Marlow braid 12mm should suffice

Many thanks, I'll see if there's any special offers at the Boat Show.
