Samuel,
is it possible to post a picture of your bow? Maybe someone gets an idea to solve your bowsprit problem.
Greetz,
Pieter

Samuel,
Hope the picture clarifies things. The white rope you see was because a bold broke and because of that the pulpit wasn't fixed anymore. With all consequences.....

Gregor. Thanks. That demonstrates that what was standard on your boat was not standard on my boat, even though they were only a short production run apart. i will post a picture when I go to the boat later.
Incidentally if anyone reading the thread has the same pulpit breakage there is a simple solution. Just drill a hole in the cross bar by the wooden tread & pass a stainless steel studding down the vertical tube then put a plate washer on the underside with a nut. A nut & washer on the top & it can be tightened. This negates the need to undertake any welding etc

Samuel, did you consider changing your total bow roller to a bow roller ready to recieve a bowsprit? I don't know if this is technically possible, or affordable...

Gr,
Pieter

If i changed the bow I would change the rest of the boat as well. i did look at a new Hanse 4 years ago & decided then that my next boat (if there was one) would definitely not be a Hanse & my opinion has not changed on that one. However, at my age a change is now too late; & besides i love the boat I have.
I have been to the marina to check all is well as I will be changing the saildrive seal after Xmas ( second one) so I took the oportunity for a photoshoot



I hook a pulley to this with a snap shackle & this takes a line - one end to the cruising chute & the other end back to the cockpit. When not using the chute i run it back along the deck & through a block on the deck & up to the clew of the jib as a barber hauler if I only want a temporary down haul on the jib when not doing a lot of tacking. Otherwise I rig 2 barber haulers

Samual,
The construction on your boat looks not as one would like it to have for using a genaker or code 0.
I understand yoou wouldn't consider a new Hanse; the new ones seems to be made for wine cruises instead of sailing at sea or so ;)
Cheers, Gregor
