Busted Pulpit

Hello,
So during an overland move, my pulpit got smashed into 5 pieces... My insurance deductible was way too high to pursue a claim, so now I'm trying to find a used one somewhere. My boat is a Catalina 30 with Tall Rig Bow Sprit. I don't need one off exactly the same boat, but with my anchor locker and bow sprit, it has to be pretty close.

There's 6 inches between the front legs, there's 35 inches between the rear legs, and the front legs are 35 inches forward of the rear legs.

Anyone who knows of one, or of a place I should look, I'd appreciate it. I'm about to drive to San Diego, so I can pick one up pretty much anywhere south of San Francisco.

Thanks!
- Hunter

Thanks!

Given how many Catalina 30s are out there... there's probably a pretty good chance you might find one that is being junked and be able to swipe the pulpit off of it... I'd recommend you check with the Catalina owners association to see if there's been a Catalina that is being parted out before being disposed of...

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Every once in a while you see or hear a phrase that would make a good name for a rock band. "Busted Pulpit" is once such phrase.

Good luck on your search. If you find something on the East Coast give a holler, I'm sure we'll help look at it before you buy it.

Regards,
Brad

Do you by chance have personal experience with these guys? I've been thinking about placing an order with them.

Yes, White Water Marine

I saw them in Good Old Boat and had them make up seven or eight pieces to my design: hardware for an offset table. Most of it was 305 stainless for the interior, some was 316 so I could use the table in the cockpit. There were easy, they were quick, surprisingly low cost, beautiful workmanship.

I've been going to Tops In Quality for most of my work, but not anymore. I was thrilled with White Water Marine.
