Would love to erase this memory of the angry pylon that took a swing at our railing. Does anyone have any good ideas for bending this back without taking it off?

Yep, I’ve seen the come along trick used too on a boat that I crewed on, in my case while the boat was in the water. It was a little scary though - lots of tension on the strap and on the dock lines. It also put a concerning amount of strain on the deck fittings. @RoyS ’s idea of finding a place for a wooden block to back the force might help prevent any damage to the deck attachments.I had a slightly bent bow pulpit once, no kinks. The boat was on the hard and in its cradle. The yard guys brought over their fork lift, and we attached a Comealong to the bent section and the forklift, pulling the pulpit back over center until springback brought it back to proper position.
