    Where do I buy a whisker pole? And how does it attach to the mast?

    Whisker pole

    You can buy one from West Marine. I think Catalina Yachts also sells them. The right length for a Capri 14.2 is 7' 8", eye-to-eye. It comes with an attachment ring which is screwed onto the front of the mast, 3' up from the deck. You'll also need a stainless ring attached to the jib clew. I weave mine into the jib sheet at the clew.

    Thanks

    Thanks, bought one at West Marine. I'm an old (and I mean old) Laser sailor. No need for a whisker pole on a Laser, no jib.:)
