What is a Bow Pulpit?
A boat pulpit is a board or set of boards attached to the bow/front, typically installed in a u-shaped configuration. Bow inserts are available for specific models as well. The boat pulpit serves several purposes. It can be used to secure your anchor, anchor rode and windlass/power winch or as a mooring point to tie your boat up to your dock. Because it overlooks the water, it is commonly used by fishermen who want a better view of their quarry and is especially useful for jigging.
While boat pulpits may not be a necessary feature, many boat owners feel they “complete” the look of their boat. Depending on it the size and shape, the boat pulpit it a great place to take in the sun or recreate your favorite scenes from Titanic if you are so inclined.
