Last year, friends moved the jibstay off Issuma’s bowsprit so the bobstay could be removed (the bobstay was taking a real beating breaking ice). I wanted to test-sail the boat for a while before removing the old bowsprit (which was then just excess weight in a bad place).
It has taken me a while to get around to doing this job. For the Northwest Passage trip, the bowsprit proved a useful place to store the grapnel anchor I carried for use as an ice anchor.
Here is Issuma with the bowsprit still on.
What’s up mates, how is the whole thing, and what you
wish for to say about this post, in my view its truly amazing in favor of me.
