Bowsprit installation
« on: 10 May, 2013, 13:35:57 »
Hi

Have recently purchased a Contest 37 and wish to fit a bowsprit to fly a Crusing Chute.  I have the single bowroller on the boat, so normal fitment on a second bowroller is not possible.  Does anyone have a solutionnto this>

Thanks

Is the current bowroller centered?  I would suggest the easy way: on the Allspars website   you can purchase a complete kit.

Hi

Yes the bowroller is centred, the standard Allpars bowsprit will not fit between the side plate of the bowroller and the pullpit.

Can ypu post a picture of the situation on your boat? The bowsprit-kit is designed to be used offcenter, is it possible to mount it next to the bowroller? And is a fixed bowsprit, basicly a stainless-steel pipe bend in a V-shape mounted to the bow, an alternative or does it need to be retractable?
