Hi 

It was made by Doyle I have it on a beefy Selden Sprit about 30 cm (12 inches) out from bow, no furler, AirX cloth (0.7 oz??), about 850 sq feet, has vectran luff  line sewn in as well. This iis mportant in order to get the luff tight for good sail shape.

If we do not want to tack we run out the genoa then ease the hallard and run the clew to  v berth hatch and douse into v berth. If you want to tack we roll out genoa then tack and let the  code 0 blow on the deck ease hallard and douse into v berth. 
While you ask for raising we have low back stay tension raise tighten hallard and then haul back on aft stay to get luff as tight as possible.

Thanks Mike.  Another question: under PHRF can you carry both an asym and a Code 0 without penalty?

Under LH PHRF and elsewhere I believe that a Code 0 counts as a spinnaker. There is no limit to the amount of spinnakers you can carry. On Mac in cruising class you can only carry two spinnakers. So I have one asym and code 0 on this race.
This was an issue for us last year when we tore our spinnaker and dropped from around 2nd,3rd to 9th on Sunday night.  We made up one spot when we could reach with  our 155  genoa Monday morning.
Oh well maybe this year we will do better.
