Hi Rich,

Great looking sail. I wish my asymetrical still looked this good! I see you have a head sail furler. I just installed one myself. Love it. However, it leaves me with a problem. Here's my question:

My halyard is used for the super yank on the furler. I don't have any bails welded to my masthead, so there's no place for a block to install a halyard for my spinnaker. Did you have this problem, and if so, what was your solution.

I'm trying to avoid taking the mast down and having a welder weld a bail on for a block. I was thinking of using a wide "D" shackle with a 1/2" pin to replace the clevis pin to give me a place to install a block. Problem is a screw pin wouldn't work, as it might open. So, that piece of hardware would be difficult to find.

Ideas are appreciated.
