Ben:
I have not got around to the photo, but you can almost see the shackle and the wire pendent on the bow (pic below). It is in a arc over the platform. Look close at the bow.

Using a shackle instead of the normal clevis pin in the turnbuckle. My pendent is just long enough to have the tack just above the top rail on the pulpit (Chafe), It just hangs down or over the bowsprit when not in use.

Oh: I used a bail that Svens in Alameda makes on my mast head, but what Bud has above will also work great.

Hope this helps.

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!

See the full list here!
