Looking for new pulpit design ideas for Swan 38

My son completely smashed our pulpit on our Swan 38, Aniara. Thank goodness nothing else was damaged.  Now we have to build a new one from scratch.  We are taking the opportunity to redesign an open pulpit as we are going to install a bowsprit to fly asymmestrical spinnaker.  Has anyone ever redesigned their pulpit for asymmetrical spinnaker use?  Do you have any pictures?  Looking to get some ideas that provide the functionality of providing easier access to the tack as well as limiting potential spinnaker snags on the pulpit when gybing.  Thanks for any assistance.

 

Thanks,

Paul

Hi Paul,

I modified the original pulpit on my 47 as in the pictures below. It is a relatively small sprit, our A2 has a full luff length, but have avoided snags on the pulpit so far!
