    newbie bowman tips

    Not sure if this has been discussed yet but I'll throw it up there anyway. Recently increased our biggest kite from 100 squares to 133 squares and hence longer pole. Old poll was J length and cleared the pullpit easily. So was always left on the mast. New pole is a fair bit longer than J, which means I have two options leave the pole on the mast, hoist the butt up the track (a long way) to a point that the outboard end clears the pulpit topper up then bring the but back down... or leave the pole on the deck and hook up to the mast before set, pain in the ass in a rough conditions... Either way I was suprised at how much a longer pole can f&ck with the flow of things. Have thought about getting the local stainless guy to build an open pulpit??????? Interested to hear more experienced thoughts? Boat: Bene 40.7 Pole: Carbon 5.2m
