Damaged Bow Pulpit

The bow pulpit was damaged during the list of the wooden boat on the waterside of Rover. There were two lifting strap of the same length on the other boat. As the lift started he stern strap came tight and lifted the stern. The bow strap as placed forward where the keel curved up and was slack. The other boat pivoted into Rover as there was still a block of wood holding the bow of the other boat. This boat’s bowsprit tangled with Rover’s  mast and bent the bow pulpit.

The pulpit is believed to be original to the boat and installed in 1979.
