Thank you! Although I won’t take the credit as I’m not the one doing the fabricating. Even though I have my fair share of input towards the project it is a very talented fabricator doing the work for me. I will keep updating you guys as more pieces get added.

Here is the "bowsprit" I made for my top down furler.  I did put a bobstay.  Called CY and spoke to Jim McNamara.  Sent him the drawings and he said it looked like it would be acceptable.  I've cranked the furler torsion line bar tight, which you need to do in order to have it furl correctly. I have a Bamar EVO product.

How does it clear your pullpit? Or does it fly “inside” it?

It flies inside the bow pulpit.

Successful test fit today after the side plates got fully welded to the top plate, stem fitting also got test fitted and I couldn’t resist to put my forestay on just to see it. Fingers crossed another 3 to 4 weeks till final install!

You'll need to back the boat up another 3' or so.  Will your slip rate go up?
