Hi, I have asked some sailmakers for price and size of a code zero that fits my boat.
The offerings varies  in size between 73 and 82 m2 and with these different furlers: Facnor Fx-2500, Selden CX25 basic pack, and Karver KF-2.
 
Anyone who have any experiences or opinion about what size and type of furler that fits best for a 430?
 
 
I would like to have it hoisted from the mast top with a new 2:1 arrangement. This to not get in conflict with top of the foresail furler. Is the mast top strong enough for that? Anyone who has been warned about not doing that?
 
For the bottom fastening, I guess I may use the existing Gennaker eye in the bow:
 
This should have enough clearance for all the proposed furlers.
 
Grateful for any comments.

Hi Lykke,
We have a Code 0 and we sailed it many times along our 45000 NM around the world.
This a 80m2 made in CZ15 from Dimension Polyant.
The Furler is a Karver 2.5
Sizes are:
Luff 19050, leech 18000, foot 9000, LPG 8460
It is not fitted on top but slightly above the jib.
We used the existing padeye on the bow. That could be better with a bowsprit!

Hi Lykke,

We have a CZ60 (120g) tri-radial Code 0 and we use a FX4500 furler from Facnor - I don't remember the exact size.

Like Alain said, you should not have it to the mast head. You really should have it mounted on the 2x M10 threaded holes right above the stay. (Your code 0 would be a FR0, not a MH0).

I used those 2 holes to screw in 2 M10 eye bolts and I made a 2:1 arrangement there. At deck level, I can use the small padeye or the bowsprit (selden) with a bob stay.

The code 0 pulls really hard on the mast and the bowsprit. I don't keep it with more that 8-9 knots app wind - which comes quickly when you start going up wind.

We previously had a gennaker up to the mast head (from the previous owner) and from the cockpit I could see the mast head flexing :-(
Also, the top part of the mast is lighter and is not designed to receive any pad-eye at this level. Sparcraft would confirm all of this.

I can sent pics if need be.

All the best,
nibheis

Thanks for input Alan and Nibheis,
 
I choosed to order the sail at my local sailmaker. He was also reluctant to let it go all the way to the top of the mast.
 
When I asked him to increase the size from 75 to 80 m2, he added the extra area at aft of the sail and kept the length of the luff.
I already have 2 eyebolts at the top of the forestay, and the old gennaker halyard was going trough both one of these and an eye at the top of the mast. I am now considering to let the halyard go through a block fastened in one of the eyebolts above the forestay. Then it will take most of the loads and also get the code a bit more away from the foresail.
 
(I will test a season with single line halyard before upgrading to 2:1.)
 
The Sparcraft drawing of the mast, shows the mast section profile to be I830.
I have not found any data about this. Only the current S830 profile that has the same outer dimensions. Anyone who knows if this is a beefed up profile, or just the same with a new name?
 
 
Have got a 3D-picture of the sail from the sailmaker. Looks nice, but I guess it is hard to evaluate the performance just out of this...?

Hi Lykke,

S830 is most probably the new name when Sparcraft redesigned their product lineup.

For the 2:1 halyard, I simply use a friction ring on the 2 eyebolts (cheap, strong and light - works great).
At the top of the furler, I use a KB12C block from Karver.

How to know if the sail is going to be good... well, you have to rely on your sailmaker's experience. Most of them use some software to get the global shape and cloths pieces cut-out accordingly. You'd probably want your sailmaker to take the measurements properly, to build the sail with quality hardware (cloth, eyelets, thread, lines, etc.), and to try the sail with you - that is at least what I expect from my sailmaker.

Best regards,
nibheis
