Re: DIY Bowsprit

my reasons for a sprit are for a genny. The working sail on my Sprite already overlaps the mast some. plans are to reduce it some ( sail singlehanded) and make it self tacking and then as the rig is a fractional, add a sprit to run a furling genny

In the end all that matters is how fully you loved, how gently you lived, and how gracefully you let go of things that did not belong to you -buddha
