    Default Needed: 12' spinnaker pole

    Dura Mater wants to keep up with the fleet. Does anyone have a spinnaker pole to sell Jackie?

    Okay, I think Bob has a spinnaker pole for me. Now, how about a spinnaker?

    And next, a windvane, please. The fella selling the Fleming on Craigslist says it's for a bigger, heavier boat than mine. And don't be hesitant to talk money, either. I'm not looking for a gift. Or a cookie or even a glass of milk. Jacqueline.philpott@gmail.com

    Hi Jaqeline,
    Can you use a 13' Forespar spinnaker pole?? You mentioned you also need a spinnaker. I have spinnaker in very good condition that came off of a Choate 40. I think the luff is 52', but can measure if interested.

    You mentioned you were open to any offer. I have a 11.9' pole, black, aluminum, it is yours for the taking. It is located at 27.43029,-154.185791 . It was accidentally left behind in a broach.

    Thank you, Brian. That's quite an offer. I'm assuming you attached a flotation device so the pole is waiting for me when I get to 27.43029, 154.185791. Did you activate your MOB as you lost it? Singlehanders exhibit such grace under pressure. Next you will want to borrow mine. Sigh. Well, okay, but you'll have to come get it.

    Holy cow, Larry! That is a big spinnaker for my 27' boat. Thank you for the offer, though. Bob Johnston sold me his spinnaker pole. It is apparently a particularly good one and I've gotten compliments on it as it sits on my bow in the boat yard.

    Jackie I bought a Santa cruz 27 kite in seattle for my cal. It fits well.

    Checking with SC 27 owners might score you a cheap kite.

    Thanks, Ronnie. Mike Farrell of Yellow Jacket is a friend, but he buys $50 sails, has them adjusted, and never sells anything. That gives me another option for size, though. I'm pretty clueless about spinnakers (never having flown one). Should a beginner get a smaller one or is it determined solely by the boat's size?
