The guidance is the bowsprit should follow the lines of the rub rail when tensioned with the forestay. Since the rubrail is curving up at the bow, then the forestay should continue the line. If too high with the current fixed length bobstay, then suggest having a new bobstay with turnbuckle installed. I made the swap on my 23d.

Bob, After looking at this thread starters user name,  I'd say he's an engineer, mechanical, works a a minor university in Boulder Colorado,  and his friends call him "Zoo" as Xuno is probably his real first name.

Since this info is a SWAG,  I'm gonna call him Zoo too.

Zoo, How's your truck running?

Looking at the Bobstay- I note it - like mine- looks pretty slack. My slack stay bothered me when I first purchased Passing Wind. Thing is, how does it look under sail? That jib under pressure should tighten up that bob stay. The other consideration is;  how tight do you want that stay when you are trying to attach that headstay to the bow pulpit?  Its difficult enough to attach when the bob stay is loose.

Glad to see more Colorado representation! I sail a 23 on Lake Granby and highly recommend the trip up when you can. There's a small fraction of the boats you'll see on Front Range lakes. I try to sail shoulder season weeknights and am often the only boat out.

I've seen one 16 on the lake. They didn't recognize mine as a Com-pac so probably not brand familiar.

I saw a Suncat last year stranded at anchor in the bay in front of the house during a gale. A power boat showed up and towed them back to the ramp.

Other than that I haven't seen another Com-pac on the lake. Pretty rare in these parts...mostly just bloat-boats.

Welcome.

Jim23, I have yet to visit Lake Granby but it is definitely on my list. When I go out there I might be curious if you would allow me to check out your 23, also curious about your thoughts and experiences on it. I am still debating on when or if to ever upgrade to a larger boat; the CP 23 would be one of the boats I would consider moving to.

You're welcome to check it out if you're up and I'm happy to share my thoughts on the boat.

I bought a 16 last November and the wood on the bowsprit was cracked in two also. I used three 3/8" stainless steel rods and a good thick epoxy to put it back together. On mine the wood was in good shape, no rot. I though of squaring up the two meeting surfaces with a plane. This would change the width of the wood so I just brushed it with a brass brush. The epoxy filled all the voids and once sanded, if the joint stands out too much, use some matching paint before you varnish. Mine looks great and I bet it never breaks again.

ooo nice!
yes, us local com-pac people need to get together one of these day, if for no other reasons just so that I can look at all your boat to get ideas for mine.
