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?
