Cheap Sunglasses' sails
with the class (oversize) pole SP = 14'. I removed the original bow pulpit
and replaced it with a pulpit from a Mumm 30. It has an open horseshoe at
the front end; the bottom
crossbar is about 1/2" above the level of the tack fittings and wrapped
with bicycle tape. Pole sits on the "soft" crossbar at about deck
level and pokes out about a foot beyond the bow. Pole hoists are very fast
and you have no worries about the pole tip being trapped inside the pulpit.
[Cheap Sunglasses made the change to the Mumm bow pulpit because the boat was 6 inches too long for a "standard" 30 - 33 foot slip in our marina. The Mumm pulpit does not overhang the bow, so the boat now measures 32 feet 11 inches overall and fits into the "standard" slip, for a savings of over $1,200 annually. The pulpit costs $350; less than the price of a high tech genoa halyard and a high tech spin halyard. Its utility for the oversize class pole was serendipity. ]
