Tanzer 16 -- Spinnaker Launching Chute

Tanzer 16 -- Spinnaker Launching Chute --December 28, 2014 -- Getting ready to paint the deck this winter and decided that it would be nice to include a spinnaker launching chute in the deck before it gets painted.  The inspiration came from Brian Mrachek.  His set-up looks like this.

He has roller furling on the jib.  This looked liked a handy way to deal with the spinnaker in a small boat.  Problem:  I can't find a source for the chute to install in the deck.  After a lot of time on the Internet, I found a supplier in UK.  

Any ideas would be appreciated.  I am not wanting to install the chute after painting.
