Bowsprint

Published date: August 20, 2006
  • Boat Type: Boat Type

Onstalled this bowsprint using 1" laminated oak, Windline Anchor tensioner (not shown) and Windline AR5 medium anchor roller. Its great for singlehanded sailing' just release tencion hook and down she goes. Use length of #10 wire as backup insurance lashing rode chain down. Its a bear to reach and draw up the locknuts from inside the point of the bow reusing the same cleat openings thru th deck. Project took 8-10 hours but worth it. If interested I can mail out a template with openings marked out. This would save you about 1+ hour. Rick 408-305-0262.
