Custom bow sprit
« on: September 23, 2021, 07:20:23 AM »

At it again  :clap

Adding a custom bow sprit and modifying the pulpit as to accommodate a harken reflex furler for a north sails helix gennaker. So far I’ve just taken all the fittings off the bow, should have a mock up within a week or so that I can share here.

Nice, please keep us posted with the progress.  I think the rollup spinnaker furling is a great idea.  Just curious, have you given any thought to the other end.  Do you think the spinnaker crane is long enough?  Wish mine was longer, but then that's with a sock.

Adding a custom bow sprit ......................

I have just become aware that on the C355s, Catalina had added a stay below the sprit.  They found that the early boats were pulling up the attachment point.  I found out by being a respondent on their Google group.

The crane on my mast is already beefed up and larger, I did fly a gennaker in a sock on this boat already as well so the fit shouldn’t be an issue.

Stu, there is going to be a stay just behind the new roller to support the anchor, I also have a U bolt that I installed just above the waterline so that I can run a dyneema bob stay.

Looking forward to it Logo.  I scored a discount ev-1 sensor core and am now working on updating the rest of the kit to have an evolution AP.
