Re: Asymmetric and pulpit

We fly the tack pennant under our second anchor roller, ahead of the furler but inside the pulpit. It generally flies within a foot of the top rail height and doesn't seem to put any considerable strain on the pulpit. Our pulpit extends similarly to what you describe. I did try it outside the rail but it spent more time rubbing along the pulpit that way. YMMV, of course.
