I'm chartering a boat at the F-18 NA's.
Would a Tiger spin work on a Capricorn? I'm looking to have a back up incase something happens.

It will work, but it won't be fast. The corners don't match up.

I know that quite a few Capricorn sailors bought Tiger spins.
One of them even got 2nd place with it at Round Texel a few years ago.

You will be towing two Capricorns to Hyannis. I bet one of us will have a spare that you can use in the case of a problem.

That same year (2009) we sailed our Capricorn with a new Tiger spi as well. It was very fast downwind.

I have to agree. I sailed Cap 147 with one of flumpmaster's tiger spins and was surprised at how well it went.
