A840 spinnaker

Amrum 9171Y says:

Has anyone got the dimensions/sq footage of the A840 spinnaker? Amrum has a cruising chute, which is fine for reaching, but I'm thinking of getting a spinnie made. There doesn't seem to be anything on the Achilles website under the specs for the different boats. Alternatively, does anyone have one in good condition for sale?

Would a Achilles 25,5 one do?

Sorry for not replying sooner, Ron - been very tied up recently. What's the spinny like? Happy if you want to Flickr mail me about it.
Thanks.

I think the rig on the 840 is the same as the 9 so, a 9m one should fit.

Measured Super Snoopy (aka Amrum 111) spinny the other day. 34'1" on the green side; 33'9" on the red side; 18'10" straight across the foot (but there is some fullness below). Don't understand the asymmetry - perhaps the sailmaker had a bad day? The spec suggests 728 sq ft. Whatever it is, it looks huge and the spinnaker pole is longer that the boom!
