The whisker pole will allow deeper sailing angles and eliminate the need for constant jibing downwind. On long downwind legs, the additional rigging of fore and after guys (attached to the outboard end) will further stabilize the pole. This will also allow emergency furling of the headsail without the need to go forward and deal with the pole first. The inboard ends are Forespar?s time proven ?UTS? style socket end or ?UXP? piston style. The outboard end is our ?UXP? style. The ?UTS? end will only fit the Forespar toggle mast car (#333004). The ?UXP? style fits #331000 RC-125 Ring Car or FC-125 (#332002) mast cars and #332025 fixed mast mounts. For use on boats 31'-40': Stows at just 7', telescopes to 21'. Weighs just 19 pounds.
