Three cheers for Squirrel — and thank him next time we hoist the spinnaker in 15+knots of wind. We now have padeyes just aft of the shrouds supporting a big turning block to route the guy down to deck further forward. This will flatten the spinnaker to de-power it in high winds so that we can hoist with confidence when the wind is howling.
