To do over...  (I have an asymmetrical spinnaker) I’d get a parasailor: put on one side and pole out the Genoa on the other for deep sailing in low wind. Put the Genoa to wind. We did that a fair amount crossing the pacific, but the parasailor I think would hold shape better. I think we have similar pole hardware forward. 


Excuse the errors.
