I am getting ready to install the new bowsprit and stemfitting. The holes for the old stemfitting were glassed over when I did my topside job and the sampson posts are not currently installed. My plan is to align the bowsprit and secure with a single bolt in the rear position. Next I will position the stemfitting so that it contacts the bottom of the bowsprit aligned with the mounting hole in the sprit. Drill holes, caulk, and mount stemfitting. Drill remaining mounting holes for bowsprit. Unbolt bowsprit, caulk the holes and the teak decking beneath the riser. Install bowsprit.

Do you have any sugestions to improve on my plan?

FLASH... Large inventory of used sailboat equipment, parts & supplies at great prices. After a 10-year circumnavigation in a Westsail 43, the owners are now clearing out all the excess and getting back to life ashore. Outfit your boat with well-kept equipment and save yourself a bunch of cash in the process!
