Fitting a bowsprit to a First 40.7

I'd be happy to receive advice about how to obtain and fit a bowsprit to improve sailing with my asymmetrical spinnaker. I have a Beneteau First 40.7

The March 2006 issue of Sail magazine has a two page article with pictures on a removable sprit "Project." I've checked the magazine's web site, but the article is not posted. If you can't get the magazine in Norway, I could try to scan it and email it. There are mounting pictures, but I don't think they would scan very well.

You might want to visit the Hallberg-Rassy website to see how they set up their boats these days for this purpose. We saw a new HR34 while near Oslo that had this arrangement and it appeared nicely done, altho' I would pay attention to how it might make bow boarding difficult when moored bow-to.

I've taked photos with the macro setting on my digital camera. They came out quite clearly. Should I send the photos to the email address on your web site?
