Ohh man, Tom, this is fantastic. I have hull 369 under refit right now and I may have to revisit some things!

Yeah. More photos please. One thing I'm going to ask the metal shop to do is maybe put a vertical center brace in my pulpit between the top and bottom rails centered forward. The whole thing is kind of flimsy, and hanging any kind of anchor off it, even a Fortress, doesn't look like a good idea.

And the bow roller, which appears to be original, has two lousy bolts in it. I'm going to stop at Hamilton Marine on the way home today and fondle bow rollers, windlasses and sundry other shiny things. A marine store with shopping carts. Dangerous.

I'm thinking about a new windless, vertical, with capstan for chain and rope. Which one you looking at and any on sale? I'm one of those that worry about weight on the bow.

I like the Lewmar V-1. It was on Defender for a minute, and I mean a minute, with 200' of line and 20' of chain or something like that for $799.00. Then it bounced to $1200, then $899, then who knows. I understand these boats sit a little bow down in the water, so I'm thinking of taking out the brand new water heater (it's big) and putting house batteries under the cockpit in reach of the stbd locker. And then figuring out how to heat water otherwise. Fine on the dock, fine when you're running the engine, but otherwise I never used the one in my Bristol. And never looked back after it was gone.

Hooligan (1982 - Hull 370) has a center bar in the bow pulpit. Don't know when Tartan moved the forward running lights from in the hull to the bow pulpit, but they mounted a single combination green/red light on the connecting bar.
In 2004, I added a Harken roller furling set-up. As part of the set-up, I purchased and installed a custom stainless combination stem tang and bow cap with tack fitting and double rollers. Have un-successfully looked for the original order, but remember it was offered thru "The Customer Service Company" (Tartan parts supplier in early 1990s-early 2000s) and the "Blackwatch Clan" (owners group ) quarterly news letter and was made in Grand River, Ohio, by an independent machine shop. It was quite expensive (if I remember correctly about $800) but very high quality and fit perfectly. Wondering if anyone else has this set-up on their 37? Would be very surprised if this part is still made (photos attached).
