Hi There!

I am looking for leading infos to fit a spinnaker on my Hobie 20.
the sail
1. Any idea which Brand or type, area works better? 21 or 27m2? Hobie's 20 spinaker kit or Tiger kit?

Any spinnaker snuffer systems in particular I should look at?

Cheers

Use an F18 spin on the 20, it fits really well. It also brings your rating down to that of an F18 as well.

I'm real happy with an I20 spin I'm running on the Supercat 20. Came from Chip @ Buck Sails, very reasonable.

We found that the tiger snuffer system works well, but the spin was a little small. We recut our old Hobie 20 spin and it worked much better.

The snu kit by barefoot studios is a wonderfull mid pole system. my crew is 5 ft and 100 lbs and loves it. There is a group in northern cal trying to get a "standard system" for the 20 now. Mark phil and mike as well as a few others.

I've got the Snu and a spin from Glaser on the F18HT and I'm very happy with both.
