Hi Guys and Girls

Sorry for the long absence but back now and 2047's rebuild is in full swing. just a few questions ...... Can some one  tell me what the hell this is for Clicky.

And can it be modified in such away to allow the easier use of the spinny. also has anyone worked out a one rope system for launching the spinny n a baker boat with crew deck?

Cheers Sven  ;o)

Hi Sven

I can see the photos just fine - if I am interpreting it correctly, the blue flat bit is the bow end of the crew deck?? Then the top piece is a 'guide' to get the kite down to size to exit the chute in front of the (snodder??? - I had to ask what that was previously!!) forestay anchor when you go for launching it.

Thus it is curved upwards at the rear edge. I have no idea what the large hole is for - I would have thought a totally smooth surface would be best. Improvements? Maybe add a large fabric 'sock'/chute to contain the kite when stowed/capsized!

I use a single rope connected to kite headboard (halyard end) and downhaul loop to launch and retrieve. The halyard comes back from the bottom of the mast, through a loop and camcleat at the rear end of the crew deck, and then loops back to the down haul. You need no more slack than is required to allow the kite to fly properley, as the downhaul end has a knack of dropping under the bow just when you don't need it! I keep promising myself I will fit a bit of elastic and a pulley to take up the slack, but haven't done it yet!!!

Hope that helps.

Mike

I have never seen one of these before!!!

Unusual looking bow!! - chute does not seem very faired into hull shape?

Most boats seem to just have some reinforcing for the forestay (with or without a snodder (the bit sticking forward into the chute) which the chute comes down under. presumably this is a more elaborate funnel to channel the chute into the boat but no idea why you would need it.
