Actually ignore that, go up the inside of the kite if I remember rightly otherwise you end up with a big "bunch" of kite that won't go down the relativly small chute mouth on Whaam.

Yep.  Assuming the kite is blowing out on the port side of the boat (ie stbd gybe) lead the downhaul out of the chute mouth, under the foot and outside the kite, through the hole and onto the upper hole with a biggish bowline. Job done.

That is a very good idea, it was something I meant to do as I used to get in a right mess sometimes when tacking that boat.  Adding a rudder gantry woould also give you a bit more room at the back end, although I'm guessing that teh proud new owners of Whaaam might be a little smaller than me anyway which might help!!
