I bought a new Code Zero sail from North for my J92S a few years ago.  I flew it twice in light air just to see what it looked like, but have not used it since and I realize I am unlikely to use it.  I’d like to sell it to help fund the purchase of a new main.

The sail is currently at the local North loft (in Toronto) and has just been inspected.  I can supply to interested purchasers: (i) original bill of sale; (ii) measurement certificate from North; and (iii) current condition report from North loft.

I’ll sell the sail for 50% of what I paid for it, shipping included to anywhere in the lower 48 USA states or Canada.

Contact me if interested.

Thanks for the replies. I will send the details to all interested parties as soon as I can but it will be about a week before I’m back home to access the necessary files.

Attached is the North Sails page describing my Code Zero which I would like to sell.  A virtually new sail at half the original (2013) price.  Please contact me if interested.

Bump - this sail is still for sale. Great value for an almost new North Code Zero for J92S.

I have a 92S and am interested in your A0.  Did you need to add a bobstay to your sprit?  Did you use a roller furler?  What was your experience the 2 times you used it?

No bobstay. Tacks to the sprit and sheets a bit aft of midship. In my limited experience it is primarily a lighter air sail designed to sail closer to the wind than a conventional asymmetric spin like my A2 and it has a fairly narrow range of angles it can be used.

Sorry forgot to also say no furler. Not necessary in my opinion.

This North A0 sail is still unsold.  It is for a J92S, and has been seldom flown.

So does it fit a classic J92?

Two more questions asked:

1.  Is this sail for a J92S.  Answer: Yes.  I changed the title of this thread to make this clear since the question has been asked (and answered) previously.
2.  "I have another question, can you tell me how you fixed the Bobstay on the retracting Bowsprit?"  
My boat does not have a bobstay - it is the factory sloop rig.  The Code Zero spinnaker, as told to me by the North rep who sold me the sail, is primarily designed for light to medium air sailing so no bobstay should be necessary.   However, I have not used the sail in anything other than very light air and there may be other opinions on this subject.

Hi Grizzly

I am looking to buy a Code 0 for my J/92 . I have been advised to install a Bobstay. The Code 0 might force the Bowsprit to bend upward, so would need to hold it down by having wire attached to the bowsprit and the hull in front so that it prevents it from bending up. 

Regards

Mark

I pushed my Code 0 pretty hard and never needed a bobstay. The sprit and its support are pretty robust.

Same here (but like Todd's, a 92 not 92S).  I had a bobstay but it didn't stay that tight and probably wasn't helping much.

Interesting thanks Bob. how did you attach the Bobstay to the bowsprit? did you just loop it on before hauling it out ?

We have a bobstay on our J/92s. Previous owner fitted it after buying a Code 0.
It's a dyneema strop with a normal loop splice on the end that goes to the fitting at the bottom on the stem and an adjustable loop splice that goes to the end of the boom. Last year we always struggled to get the right length. When it’s too short you can’t extract the full length of the boom. When it’s too long it just does nothing.
So in the end we did not use it at all last year (our first season). Will try play around with it this year. Can take a picture of the set up if anybody cares.

Hi Philipp thank you for the information. Yes if you can take some pictures it would be great. 

I have seen one J/92 that had a look pitted on the Hull. They attached a wire to the loop before leaving the pontoon and the other end was cleated temporarily to a stanchion. When about to take the Bowsprit out, the Bowman uncleated the wire and the looped end was placed around the Bowsprit. Am unsure whether it was just looped around or fixed to it somehow. Then the Bowsprit was hauled out and therefore tightened the Bobstay. They would have calculated the right length for the bobstay before. Dont think it was adjustable but i may be wrong.

Hi Mark.
This seems exactly like what we have. We have a U-bolt fitted at the bottom of the stem. Before we go out we stick the dyneema loop through the fitting and then through itself. The loop at the pole end is big enough to go over the pole. What I didn't mention before is we have a little snap hook in the dyneema loop that we hook into the tackline fitting on the top side of the pole. That way the bobstay can't slip aft. 

Sometimes we didn't put the loop over the pole but clipped the snap hook directly to the tack line fitting. Looks a bit strange with the bobstay just on one side of the pole but it works.

If you put the loop over the pole at every manoeuvre then you need a tack line block that you can unclip quickly from the fitting. 

The other option would be to leave it always on and find a way to pull the bobstay up (out of the water) when the pole is retracted. Still looking for a good way for that as it seems the easiest.

Still not sure what's the best way to rig it ... still learning and keen to improve if someone has better input. 

Some people say there is no need for a bobstay. I'm still still not sure. In smooth sailing conditions (flat water or bigger swell) I don't bother most of the time. But my guess is that it can be useful when sailing in choppy conditions and the boat is bouncing a lot and the Code sail is "pumping" with every wave.
