Thanks. I had a chance to read some of the other threads and have a better idea of the issue. Thanks again.

Yes, it is possible... then again, you could put a bowsprit on a Searay... but without more information, it isn't reasonable to expect any more detailed an answer than that. :)

It is possible, but it will change the balance of the rig. Move the center of effort forward and she'll be hard to keep on the wind.
All sailing is about balance.
