I have tried an assy kite on the Blaze, bloody brilliant when it works but launch and recovery is difficult without dedicated systems. I can manage it on the Spice in the light but I'm handicapped on the Blaze by not being allowed to drill for fittings (not complaining, I don't really want to irrevocably alter the boat) so everything has to be jury rigged to some extent. I got a chute arrangement working from " ally tube last summer but, not surprisingly, it wasn't strong enough and failed. Might try a bucket again but still use a downhaul recovery system (when I first tried it I recovered from the clew).
Spice 346 "Flat Broke"
Blaze 671 "supersonic soap dish"

What boat would this chute be for? I understand that the decision has been made not to go ahead, but some context for this thread would be nice.
