When we bought our new (to us) boat, the bow pulpit was pretty much off kilter too. The yard suggested that they knew a welder who'd be happy to come by with his mobile workshop to help us out for a couple of hundred dollars. A week later, and our pulpit was straight, we didn't have to worry about where our lifelines were led, and the lines of our boat were't screwed up by a nutty-looking forward end. We also didn't have to be so concerned about falling overboard. Well worth it. It's now been about 10 years since we had the pulpit fixed. Wish some of my other investments had paid off as well as this one has. You don't want to skimp on safety, even if you don't get out to that end of the boat that often.
