Removable Bowsprit C SPRIT

Hey I came across this website

C Sprit - Removable Carbon Bowsprit for Sailboats

I have been thinking about a bowsprit for my Catalina 36 for sometime.
Anyone have any experience with this?

Looks good if you can work it around your bow jewelry like the anchor roller. Expensive piece of bling, however.

Re: Removable Bowsprit C SPRIT

There is a good bit more information on the topic, here Code 0's and Sprits
Where a multiplicity of design types of fixed, retracting, folding, & removable sprits are covered. Including suppliers.

That said, yes, the concept makes a lot of sense, & if properly engineered, makes a lot of sense. And they've been around for long enough so that the loads are known well, so that designing them properly's not too tough.

Thanks for sharing the link.
