Today, we received a new carbon fiber spinnaker pole by Selden. It is for a J35. We are customizing this pole to meet the specific needs for our client. The client wanted to use the pole jaws up while having the jaw trip line on the bottom of the pole. So we installed Harken through blocks, tied the trip line internally to the piston and ran the line out of the bottom.
Here are some photos and a video to give you an idea of how this works.
