The standard snuffer such as the I20 will not work on the Tcat with the chute luff length at the max.
<br>I have heard of modifications where the snuffer hoop is positioned in the center of the pole.
<br>Marstrom has a snail used on the M20 where its mounted close to the front cross beam. However, on the Tcat it must go up under the bridle to clear the forestay wires. The problem is not quite enough clearance for this and so the jib winds up being raised a couple of inches (bad). The pro's and all of the Euro F18 and F20 sailors seem to just bag the chute. Time will tell. I think the Europoeans and Aussi's are retooling as we speak and will try out the latest mod's in August at the Euro championships.
<br>Take Care
