Paul McManus has taken the following photos of his whisker pole installation on a US Spars mast rig. He included a copy of the purchase invoice for the parts at the bottom of the page.
The following information on the pole is summarized from Forespar website:
|Part No.||Collapsed Length||Weight||Max. Working Length||Tubing Diameters|
|401106||10′ 1.750″||17 lb.||18′ 2.130″||2.000″ & 2.500″|
The 10′ to 18′ working lengths compare to a typical 15′ for our regulation spinnaker poles. The track, sliding ring, lines and storage is virtually identical to my setup for a 15′ spinnaker pole on the earlier Zspar rig.
