A bowsprit retro-fit kit is now available for J/100 owners. The sprit extends 4.5′ in front of the stem and allows an approximate 12-15% increase in the size of the asymmetrical spinnaker. This is an “in-hull” installation kit which requires fiberglass expertise to install properly. We recommend that only yards capable of composite and gelcoat work take on the installation.
Carbon fiber bow sprit finished in white or black Awlgrip with end fitting and two bearings.
Composite insert for hull cut-out.
Composite bearing tube with glassed on water trap.
Sprit drain tube with stainless clamshell vent.
Internal hardware for sprit line and preventer.
Sprit outline line and preventer line.
Instructions and template for hull cut-out.
The total kit price is $3,850 and includes packaging for shipment, FOB Bristol, RI. Freight not included. Please allow up to 3-4 weeks from order date to shipping date.
