<DIV><FONT color=#000000 size=2>Bill or Nollin ....&nbsp; A pole length of 
8'4&quot; is just about perfect. Some might favor a few more inches so that they 
can really move the pole well forward as the wind moves forward of directly aft. 
Personally I always feel my boat is going better if I remove the pole when the 
wind gets within 15 degrees of a beam reach.&nbsp; Be careful with the small 
diameter poles that a usually found on boats this size. They will fold up 
quickly with the Genoa and winds above 12mph. In spite of all the scare stories 
and <EM><U>BS </U></EM>articles the spinnaker on our boat is a &quot;pussy 
cat&quot; in 12mph and under... even with a crew of two! I'm are <U>really 
</U>old and we have no problem with the spinnaker. Its a myth that it is an 
uncontrollable beast waiting to do you in!

<DIV><FONT size=2>We have used the heavier spinnaker pole with the working jib 
when it is &quot;blowing dogs off chains&quot; with good success.</FONT></DIV>

<DIV><FONT color=#000000 size=2>PS .&nbsp; Was it one of you who asked the 
height of the mast eye?&nbsp; 42 inches above the deck measured on the forward 
edge of the mast. It is a good average height ... it is not set in stone! Some 
folks even place the eye on a track for moving its location. Mine all have been 
42 to 44 inches.
