Bowsprit, bobstay etc.....

Bobstay and bobstay plate installed.  My friend Rhys suggested adding "a second hole (on the lower plate) that can carry a waterline rode snubber".  I did not have this option as I bought the bowsprit already made.  I have seen this on a few boats and had thought it an interesting idea. 

Should be robust enough.

My late friend Patrick's boat "Gaia" for comparison purposes.  The location of my lower plate was dictated by the shape of the bow.

Small upgrades.....

My bowsprit did not come with a bob-stay, that had to be ordered separately.  I'm not even going to discuss the cost but if I ever sell the boat I'm taking it with me.

Moved into a bigger storage area in the yard.  This is how much space an exploded Whitby 42 takes up.
