Hints and Tips



Sun Odyssey 29.2 bowsprit

Confronted with snapping of navigation lights while sailing with my gennaker (asym Spi) due to clipping of the tackline I decided to attach a light bowsprit.

I used a aluminum pipe (strengthened inside with two other profiles) of 80 cm.


Attached two spinnakerboom-caps to both ends.


Replaced the anchor roller for a tube with a welded ring. Attached a fitting on deck.


Gennaker works better this way and you don't loose your navlights all the time.......
