    Construction of a Pogo 50

    you can put a roller in the hatch, have a take down line from the front end of the boat, through a turning block as far back as you can in the aft cabin, then to the mast, and to a fairlead near the entrance so the pit person can pull this. this way you can easily get the majority of the spinnaker in, and your bow person drops the rest. be prepared to train some crew choreography to do it well. on a single/doublehanded boat, this would not work.

    Headfoil vs Hanks, thoughts?

    soft hanks are an option! we used to have bronze hanks on our 186% jibs, but changed to soft hanks. no more snagging!

    How to re/mark ropes?

    you can do a loose stitch with knots on the end with whipping twine which you pull inside the line. then cut it. this will create a fluff mark. if you need to reset them, pull the twine out and redo.
