Can someone tell what the proper forestay setup should be for a end of pole snuufer. I thought the forestay is different than the uni-rig. Uni having 2, snuffer having one center and differnet bridle wire? Can someone give me specifics? Thanks

Hi,
Yes, there is a different forestay/bridle for the spinnaker versus the uni-rig.
The latest assembly manual covers all of this, including 2 new pages for the snuffer (pages 26 & 27) and can be downloaded from:

Attached is a page from the manual
Good luck!

I don't know the Hobie setup, and it looks like Hobie assumes you will stuff the spinnaker in a bag on the tramp. For the snuffer used by the NACRA I-17R, we originally rigged the 2-forestay system with a small wire going from the point the 2 forestays meet and tied to the middle of the spin pole to hold the pole up. This, in effect, gave you 3 forestays for the spinnaker to go around on each gybe. NACRA developed a lower bridle, single forestay system that most use now. If you are developing your own system, it is do-able with the dual or single forestay system. You just need to figure how to hold the pole up. The wires from the tack to the bows (and the mast and sheets, of course) carry all the forces from the sail back to the boat. The single forestay gives fewer stays to clear on a gybe.

I don't have any pictures, but it is a typical sloop-type bridle. It was developed for the optional (non-racing) jib kit. Maybe your Performance dealer has something on it.
