Bump. For a W friend to show the sprit guide idea.

Last year I saw how Ralph solved this bowsprit tube/guide on Jacque’s boat. I noticed that his WWorld has a different metal bar, so Ralph’s solution was different there. Also, he cut the bowsprit shorter, used a narrower tube, and fixed tube’s rear end to the floor just in front of the inspection hatch. The advantage is: more space because of narrower tube and possibility of lowering the mast without fiddling with the bowsprit installation first. The advantage of solution on Pin?ika is that it can be reverted to original system completely and easily.
