Chute Scoop ChuteScoop by VF Shaw Co.

Country/Region of Manufacture:

United States

  This V.F Shaw Co. CHUTESCOOP SPINNAKER SOCK was used briefly on a Catalina 30. The owner (remembering what he paid for it) couldn't bear to 'Give it Up With The Ship' when he sold the boat.

  This 'snuffer' makes life much EASIER AND SAFER when retrieving the spinnaker, and can prevent those OVERWHELMING MOMENTS on the foredeck when retrieving that 'downwind motor'. (What's the old saying- 'Anyone can get a spinnaker up- It takes a sailor to get one down.' This prevents having to have that hardcore sailor aboard)

  Length is about 37 feet, (plus about 3-4 feet for the securing lines) which will FIT MANY VESSELS IN THE 30 TO 40 FOOT RANGE (remember, the spinnaker doesn't go all the way to the mast head.). Great for larger boats with fractional rigs. Very, very high quality construction, with Wilcox Crittenden hardware. Heavy braidlines. Material just shows a bit of of onboard sailocker storage- It remains bright white and looks great. V.F Shaw makes some of the best storm sails, galeriders and related equipment.

Comes with a nice blue mesh bottomed storage bag.

Here's a brief overview of spinnaker socks-

   Using one of the sleeve-type launching/retrieving devices makes hoisting and dousing your cruising spinnaker even easier. To hoist, one simply raises the sail, stowed in its sleeve, to the masthead. Then, with the small continuous halyard, which is an integral part of the sleeve, the lower end of the "sock" is raised, freeing up the spinnaker. The sleeve, which is made of lightweight material, bunches into a compact, barely noticeable "ball" above the head of the spinnaker which doesn't affect the set of the sail. When it's time to strike the 'chute, one simply eases the sheet, heads downwind to ease the pressure in the sail, and pulls the "down" side of the continuous halyard. As it is pulled down, the sleeve effectively recaptures the 'chute. In heavier winds, easing the downhaul and trimming the sheet allows the spinnaker go behind the mainsail, blanketing the 'chute and reducing the pressure in the sail before pulling down the sleeve. Whichever method you use, the stowed spinnaker is secure inside the sleeve and one simply lowers the sleeve, with the sail inside, by releasing the spinnaker halyard and gathering in the whole bundle.

 

THE CHUTESCOOP-


Stainless steel ring and custom hardware.

Top quality white ripstop nylon cloth sleeve.

Easy to install on your sail.

No boat modifications required.

Simple and safe to use on cruising and regular spinnakers
.

One or two people can easily and safely handle the sail.

Works in strong heavy winds and is strong enough to reef your spinnaker.

Made in the U.S.A.

  Though this is a substantial construction, the stated USPS shipping cost is correct anywhere in the U.S.

  This Chutescoop is the 'Coin of the Realm' in spinnaker dousers. It is not one of the inexpensive and troublesome mesh monsters. Though it cost about $400.00-$450.00 (probably more today) it is offered with an extremely .............Low Starting Bid.
