I was repairing my collision shattered bulkead, trying to make it strong enough to withstand the next impact from the sprit, when I suddenly realised how dumb that would be.

Simply allow a semi-circular cut out to the bulkhead and let the pole flow thru. By using heavier glass for the repair, on 10mm foam instead of 1/2", the bulkhead will still be strong enough.
Happy to have converted a sad situation into a better boat.

Protects carbon pole from the sun too. Neat.

Jaymac must have a lot of time on his hands. I wonder what his house and car look like.

Won't the cap get caught on the ledge? Not fast for buoy racing.....

looks great, we always just tie the stopper so it pulls up short, but as someone points out this leaves it in the UV.
Nice Work!

Are those PVC caps?
