Crealock 37 - Code 0 bowsprit

I will be adding a Code 0/Screecher to Crazy Fish's sail inventory in the near future.

I am looking to attach it forward of the current bow pulpit, looks like the attachment point needs to be about 18inches forward of the anchor rollers so
that the halyard clears the bow pulpit.

Current idea is a U shaped piece of stainless steel tubing running alongside of the anchor-rollers in a slightly larger tube with delrin inserts and pins aft of the bow rollers. When not in use it will be able to be slid aft. When in use will slide forward and into place. Will add a bobstay made up of Amsteel line and a block and tackle so that when the piece is slid back the the bobstay will not interfere with deploying an anchor.

Was wondering if anyone else has added a Code 0 to a Crealock 37 and how it is attached to the boat.

Re: Crealock 37 - Code 0 bowsprit


Not on a Crealock, but I am doing this to a Beneteau 381. We went with the Selden retrofit bowsprit that attaches to one side of the anchor rollers, and comes with all the hardware needed to mount it to the deck, and a mounting ring for the anchor roller. All in all it was a pretty simple installation that didn't require any modifications to the boat, except some bolts into the anchor locker for the retaining ring in the back. We went with the largest pole they had to get the most forward projection, so I think it was around $750 for the sprit. For a code zero you would also need the bob-stay bracket that I think is $100.

As you mentioned though it is removable, and stowable pretty easily. But instead of the 1'6" projection you are getting, I think ours is around 3'8". Which makes for a much bigger spinnaker. We didn't want a code sail so the bobstay wasn't an issue, but went with a VMG for reaching and downwind.

We also added a selden top down furler to the system, so we can leave it up all day and ignore the spinnaker if we don't want it.
