It’s a procedure known as an Addadicktome.  Fairly common these days.  Starts as a prosthetic until the crew is ready to take a full  carbon tube.

Home Depot and Harbor Freight have teamed to start a new marine business...Harbor Depot!  Not marine grade and not high quality but affordable!

I heard what the "scientists" said, but I looked at their plans and they were a disaster.

Obama tried to make a sprit, but it was a total disaster: long, dark, and stiff. It would cause destruction in a Stormy.

I said to our wonderful first lady, "All I need is a Sharpie" and it's like a miracle.  People can't believe it.  Many people say this is the best prod they've ever seen.  The do nothing, port tacking democrats are trying to give this a low rating and other racers are laughing at us.  I have appointed Jared to head the PHRF committee and we will win bigly.

All brilliant responses. I cannot come up with anything better.

How about, "climate change caused all the branches to fall off my Christmas tree"

Hey,  that's my boat!   who put that pic here?

And yes I am an engineer.

What you are looking at is a true carbon fibre bow sprit.  

Was just goofing around in this non racing Covid year.

''WEST MARINE'' Closing down sale.   Everything must go.. Grab your pole while stocks last.

If you cannot find a better place to stick it,  than stick it on your boat.

Penny wise, pound foolish.

Pining for the fjords.

...But seriously: The dinghy anchor? What's with the blue lines with idiot knots. Gotta be a bad furling line lead. Bow light clusterfuck, seriously? Ratchet straps?
