Jeff,

That looks great! I didn't realize Bud had a bowsprit available that bolted outboard to the hull like his boomkin. I really like the "flat entry" and expanded platform. I'll have to ask him about the price for it and a chainplate.

As for the teak, have you been able to find a reasonably priced source for it? The cheapest I've found is about $18/bf, which adds up to a pretty penny when doing caprails and a bowsprit/boomkin pulpit platform. I'm in southern Florida. If we go that route and need to make a platform up, I might also look into plastic deck planks - supposedly they take nonskid well and last forever. Home Depot has them, but I've not looked to see if they're available 6" wide.

Boy oh boy, I like that bowsprit! Did it come with the bow pulpit as well?

And (last question), do you like your "bun hugger" mast pulpits? I'm debating which I'd prefer, or even if I want them; I've not been aboard a Westsail with any installed. I'm concerned it would force you to be too close to the mast.

Fairest leads and shady quarters,
Aaron N.
