There is an aluminium reinforcement inside the hull at the bow, and I have added also an inox counter plate inside.

Hi

The code Zero is on a Karver KF2 furler. Very easy to furl.

At first we were using the spinnaker halyard but the code zero and jib furlers were touching each other at top end. Now we have a specif block fixed in the mast up to the jib head point (Orange Halyard).

Ooops!!! you can see at least 2 mistakes : the second spinnaker halyard is at the wrong place and also the headsail halyard point is not properly fixed...
Hopefully this picture helped me to correct those 2 points before any damage occurs.

Meaban,
Perhaps I didn't understand your statement at the bottom of your picture but I thought the upper "loop" was for the spinnaker/Code Zero halyard and the 2 lower "loops" for the jib/genoa.  Right?

In fact there are 2 spinnaker halyards, and originally they go through the 2 rings you see over the self tacker head.

So now I only use the orange one as spi/code zero halyard, and the other one is used for the spi pole (not very practical indeed).

Hi,
this our 375 with the bowsprit system of the 370, which we adapted and reinforced.

First 4000 miles, no substantial problems

Looks great.  How does it attach to the underside of the bow extension?  Also, how do you like your Furlex.  My Hanse came with a Facnor and I have never been happy with it.  Too hard to furl.  Requires use of winch always.

The attachment to the underside of bow extension is welded. The Furlex works OK but is also rather hard to furl, but we don't need the winch. The Facnor 2500 furler for the code 0 works really great.
