Spinnaker pole length: The class rules allow for a spinnaker pole length from 74-97" long. My first thought is that this is a really wide range.....what length do you use? ... See MoreSee Less

Rob have we ever measured ours ?

220...221...whatever it takes

Rob Frink You can't seriously be asking this. We all know that it's girth that matters.

And there it is - I was waiting for the sarcasm to begin . Just for the record good crew never complains about her captain's pole

A survey about length? Seriously? Why am I mostly amazed that it took as long as it did to degenerate... And where is the comment from Tim?

Unlike you guys.....I've never had to worry about my length

If most people are mid length we should be spot on and since your crew is short I don't know how long we could go

Technique counts...

My hull came with a 9 foot long wood one....that has subsequently been replaced.

Seriously, the range in lengths occurred when the specs for whisker & spinnaker poles were combined. Long pole theoretically would perform better, but since even the shorter length is quite long the performance differences are unclear. The shorter length is easier to maneuver. Both lengths have won multiple regattas & nationals. Summary, if its legal, no worries. Get the pole up, out and have fun ๐Ÿ˜†

Sorry, we have a carbon fiber pole and when we sold you the boat it was not included. He's never giving up that pole or rudder. Top secrets!

I'm refitting my Interlake and would like to know the specs of what all the lines are supposed to be. Is there a specific website that any would recommend? I'd also like to know where I might find the Hull # of my boat. ... See MoreSee Less

Comment on Facebook

Hull number is one of 2 places depending on the age of your boat. Centerboard trunk drilled with tiny holes indicating the number or on the transom on the upper right side.

Contact our builder regarding line lengths. Wes Blazer. Weatherly Boat Works. (U can search fb or scroll way down in this fb pg).

Dieball sailing (loft in MI) will also know lengths.. my 3/8" width jib sheets are 33 ft in length.. but pending on your configuration your needs could be different. You can always buy longer and then cut and burn ends to desired length
