Hi David,
Sorry I can't help you with a sail but try this PDF from Kemp sails about using a cruising chute. http://www.kempsails.com/technical-data ... /file.html This is how I have mine rigged. I also have a spinnaker pole, with uphaul and downhaul, which I use to pole it out opposite side to the boom like a conventional spinnaker when dead downwind.
Good luck finding a sail, I got mine off eBay a few years ago.
Rob
