It's not the name of the boat, it's the builder Faurby

Found this on a brand new boat at the boat show last weekend.
The builders offer this option for customers that don't want a bowsprit.
the pad eye have two turnbuckles that transfer the load to the bow fitting.

Yes, the yard crew that stepped my mast got a little creative on me. My bad for not being a more active supervisor in the process. That's #1 on my list toward resolving this issue.

Re: Gennaker downhaul on CS27

also noticed that you have one tang on upside down from the other.

What a cool idea - it's like a mini-sprit of sorts! May have to try that as well...

Re: Gennaker downhaul on CS27

add two tangs on the existing forestay pin and angle to match the pulpit upright. lash it to the upright and a soft attach tack block either forward or aft of the pulpit. the tangs will take the load and the lashing will hold it in place forward of the furler drum

Re: Gennaker downhaul on CS27

Faster, that's exactly what I wanted to do in the first place, but I couldn't quite find the right hardware - was hoping someone else knew of something that would work. I've seen the clamshell fittings for attaching a bimini, but then there's the whole "where does the bock go now?" question. I also saw a stanchion fitting from Harken that their blocks can go on, but I'm not sure it lets the block articulate enough to avoid straining the fitting's collar. So I'm back to wondering the best way to attach a block to that location!

Re: Gennaker downhaul on CS27

Have a good look when you run that and see whether or not the tack line chafes on the furler drum.. if so that's not good or either.

One thought I had was getting one of those clamshell fittings that bolt around the pulpit stanchion down low, one that you can attach a shackle to (like a bimini bow attachment piece) or ideally something similar but a little more robust. I'd think that's a pretty strong location right near the base fitting, and gets your much more forward vis a vis the furler drum.
