You mean to tell me they have to do all that to get the chute down? I thought it was me yelling at them that made it come down faster!

We do it like Don says, pole first, then halyard, then tack line.

Also like Don says a good cleaning and some new felt in there would be good as well.

One more thing, if you try this and it does not work, you may need to remove the sprit 'snail' and redo the felt sliders and McLube them and the pole well.  The pole must be free of dirt, gum, grim,etc and be well lubricated.

On the spin take down first release the sprit line, as the foot is gathered in the sprit will retract, then release the tack line to complete gathering the foot in, then release the spin halyard to complete the take down.  Works every time on #25.  I once did the bungee thing attached to the sprit inside forward plug until I found the correct method mentioned above.
Wow, in twenty years of sailing a U20 I've never done a starboard rounding.  May want to tie a stopper knot in the sprit activation line so that the tip does not retract but an inch or two behind the stem.

Jim Uli and juiced #19 has a bungee system set up to retract the pole. I do not know how well it works.
