61 parker25lc Pulpit choice ... 11/9/2003 17:42:00

FYI: My Parker 2520, the "Lady Catherine", got beat up by a 32'
cabin cruiser that broke her mooring during a wind storm footer at
the end of Ocotber ... 2 days before I was to pull her for the
season. This was the boat I spent all last winter refurbishing with
custom teakwork and galley.

As part of the insurance settlement, I have the choice of the old-
style bow rail (without a pulpit), like I had, or the new-style one
with a pulpit. I could either buy the factory pulpit, but would
most likely make one out of 2" teak, which thankfully I have the
machinery for.

What are your PROs and CONs against a pulpit? Dock space for me
isn't an issue as I'm on a mooring, very rarely at a dock, and have
off-season storage in a private yard, so no one will care if the
overall length is a touch longer. Seeking ALL inputs, thank you!

P.S. - I used to post on the the old Parker forums as "Reel-Rascals"
or "DaleH"
