Default Adding pulpit

Purchased a ‘45 Viking open earlier this year. Boat did not have a pulpit. Anyone have one added one and where did they purchase it.

We called Viking and they said they couldn’t.

Either build one yourself or have a local fiberglass specialist fabricate one for you: You could have it colored matched to your hull w/ Awlgrip when you are done. That's what I would do.

Couldn't or wouldn't.
Not worth their time.
Go take some pics of one you like, find a glass shop up thataways and have them make it, it will not be inexpensive.
Especially if you add a rail, windlass, etc.

So I've had this wish on a much smaller boat. But similar challenges/costs will arise. like the fabrication of a new bow rail to match the profile of the new pulpit. The moving of any cleats or bow eyes that may be affected (although you likely won't have these issues). Trimming and terminating rub rail...etc.etc

Good luck
make sure you consider all hurdles
