Just installed a new swim platform, hinged to allow stowage in big seas. Here's a view from beneath. Looks prettier from above, and is very functional - now the default boarding platform. It balances the weight of the recently installed custom bowsprit, and restores the waterline to level, too. By the way, the bowsprit has created a whole new feeling. She's now a balanced waymaker with all sails set, even upwind; weather helm is a thing of the past.

I'm impressed. Homemade? Also interested in your custom bowsprit. Any pictures?

Yes. Took me all winter. I'll take some photos of the sprit, too.

Attached are photos of both swim platform and bowsprit. Together they increase LOA from 42 to 47, but both are great enhancements to enjoyment and performance.
