Actually the pulpit has been expertly reworked and it now fits the boat much better. This is the last (maybe only) P34 built by Bristol Yachts for "Cal-Pearson" in 1997 (hull 61). The boat was unfinished when Bristol went out of business. Between the large pulpit and tiny roller, one gets the impression they were just trying to finis up this boat with any spare parts they had laying around.
