This is a 1-3/4” thick solid mahogany bowsprit I designed and build for the bow of Asspettami, the 1982 Bayfield 25 sailboat that I have spent the last year rebuilding. The last picture in this series shows the original bowsprit.

I like yours much better, nicer shape.
I’m not such a fan of fibreglass boats but the hayfields have always been among the few that do draw my attention. They have nice lines and a more traditional look than most.
You’ve done some very nice work here.

What an awesome show of design and craftsmanship. Really unique.
