I recently bought a 1900 J35 C. I currently use an ATN tack it collar to fly the asym chute and tack it to the roller furler. I am looking for ways to avoid this and create a very short, but useable bowsprit to tack the chute to or use for a code zero. It only needs to get the tack out in front of the bow pulpit.
I was even thinking of just attaching a block to the bow roller, but I know it is not built to handle that load.
Has anyone done this? I don't love the look of the Trogear bow sprits and want to keep it simple up front. Suggestions are greatly appreciated!
