    Default Re: Spinnaker Snuffer , or not ... ?

    I don't use a snuffer but do a lot of spin flying especially when shy. It does seem that if the spin is not pulled right to the top it can get a swing about the spin and will not set very well. Looking a the photo and with the general idea of snuffers it seems to me that with the spin shoulders not right at the halyard exit ie positively located at the mast then in a snuffer one would get the same effect as a spin not pulled right up. In other words I think a spin would set a lot better especially when shy without a snuffer. olewill

    There isn't a rod your right ..

    at the top of the spinnaker snuffer there is some wire which is connected to both the spinnaker and the top of the snuffer , it didn't look load bearing so I connected the halyard to both the head of the spinnaker and to the attachment point on the snuffer ..

    what you said makes sense maybe I have been rigging this up wrong . ..

    That’ll explain the snuffer occluding the top part of the sail then. Sounds like the wire might have been a version of the device I mentioned, especially if it had a loop in each end.
