Hello Super Maramu owners -
I would like to take a poll of the group regarding preferred downwind sailing configurations: those who use asymmetrical spinnakers versus the twin headsails, versus some other option such as a Parasailor.
How does the performance of the these compare for light and moderate wind?
A parasail is probably out of my price range, but what are the opinions of those who use it?
Does anyone use a spinnaker on a top-down furler rather than with a sock?
For an asymmetric spinnaker, I see the standard size is 115m^2. Is this the size used by others on the forum?
I would like to have a back up for the twin headsails in case of a sail or system failure.
The most economical option is to have a spare ballooner. However, a top-down furling spinnaker seems like an attractive and convenient option for short-hand deployment and dousing (particularly when sailing for many days at a time).
