    Posted: 04 May 2021 at 12:07
My boat doesnít have a factory installed mast plate/eye, attachment point for the spinnnaker pole.

I wonít use a classic spinnaker (have the assymetric/gennaker) but bought a Pfeiffer extendable spinnaker pole for use as a whisker pole.

Will be using the pole mainly with the selftacker.

My question is; at what height from the deck should  I fix the mast plate?
What height from the deck is the factory plate and what height would be ideal for whisker pole for use with selftacker.
I read somewhere, ideally a pole should be horizontal?

Any experience, specifically with poling out the selftacker ?

Best regards,
Peter

Based on the experience of polling out a self tacker on my last boat (essentially the same rig) I managed to find a second hand extending pole for the 418. I've just had a rigger fit two rings for the pole (Selden supply as a set of two). Ive had one installed at gooseneck height and the other just above guardwire height. I haven't tried them out yet but have no reason to think they won't be suitable. Polling out a 105% genoa and a self tacker helped a lot on my last boat

Ha - I am in the same situation

Got a peiffer telescopic whiskerpole and got a peiffer mount.
But luckily I had the mast on shore before drilling holes for the mount.

Instead I will mount a track and a spinaker pole slide.
The great advantage is that the slide/wagon can be removed an will not catch the selftacker sheet.

I got 1 meter track but will install aprox 50 cm in the centerline of the mast.
Still have not found the correct height yet.

Thanks for the reply.
Good point about the cable trays/tubes on the inside of the sparctaft mast, didnít know they were there.
