Extendable gennaker bowsprit. Sold as a kit for deck mounting. Just ﬁt the two stainless steel pad eyes to the deck in line with the bow bracket. This bracket is a stainless ring with a low friction polyamide inner lining through which the bowsprit slides into the “active” position. After the gennaker is doused, the bowsprit can slide back and be secured to the aft eye. If required, it can be quickly removed and stowed securely below.
The gennaker tackline runs through the bowsprit, entering and leaving via well rounded holes, and then aft to the cockpit. An alternative is to ﬁt an external tack block at the outboard end.
