Spinnaker pump halyard drawing
Hi all, Does anyone have an easy drawing for a pump halyard system please for the kite?
Mark Barnes has some great detailed photos
Does the pump system work even if the 'free end' of the halyard is attached to the downhaul patch on the spinnaker rather than an elastic take up system as would be the case on a 470 with no chute? I ask as there needs to be tension on the line to pull it through after each pump.
Thanks for the info Stuart, very helpful. I'm thinking about option2, can you explain more about the floating block? I understand what it does but where does its tensioning elastic run and where is its cleat located?
Thanks all, and to John Fildes for his message too. His option is basically system 1 I believe. now just got to map it out on my boat.
