CUSTOM POLES & KITS

Forespar® offers "customized" poles built to specific dimensions, and also "kit" poles in which both ends are left loose to allow the marine dealer or yachtsman to finish the pole himself. End fittings and tubing are available separately for those who wish to assemble poles to their own specifications.

DETERMINING POLE LENGTH

The length of your spinnaker pole is determined by the yachts "J" measurement. This is roughly the straight line distance from the front of the mast at deck level to the headstay. The "J" measurement is available from your sailplan, or contact Forespar® and we will be able to assist you in determining the proper length.

The "kit" lengths that are shown on the following pages are the maximum we recommend for each tubing diameter. However, oversized poles are available.
