1990 Ericson 28-2
On Danu we typically sail with a jib as our headsail or run the asymmetrical spinnaker with a sock - on our boat we are cruisers. I have been racing more the past few years on other boats and when replacing the running rigging this Spring I had the previously removed spinnaker pole topping lift replaced/returned. I cannot figure out how the previous, previous owner (he was an avid racer) had the boat rigged for running a symmetrical spinnaker as there is not a pad eye in middle of the deck forward of the mast to which (typical to me) a block would be attached, and the foreguy would run from the pole to the cockpit. There's always been a box of additional blocks/hardware that I have not looked in for years... any thoughts?
