DIY Bowsprit

I have been thinking of adding a bowsprit to my J24. Not to use for racing, just for the light air cruising days. I would fly a genaker. Could a retrofit kit damage the bow with unsupported upward forces? Would the tack of the standard 150 genoa chaff on the pole attached to the deck? Is it worth it, or should I just attach the tack of the genaker to the tack of the genny (inside the forestay)?
