Joseph and Monica Lynch

Bud,
I've read, somewhere, that by adding chainplates to the stern, athwartships and aft of the sampson posts, I can add a split backstay and eliminate my boomkin. I am nearing the point of replacing or eliminating my boomkin. I estimate that this will require me to cut about 8-12 inches from my boom, and maybe an inch or so from the leach of my main. I would prefer to remove it alltogether and install a SS sternpulpit. Are you aware of this conversion? Do you consider this a viable alternative to the boomkin?
