Is the same pulpit used on a standard rig as on a tall rig?

Boy I know that experience. First time out with my boat, I was in tight quarters There was a fresh breeze blowing the boat. I was trying to learn the nuances of the boat, motor, and effect of wind on free-board, of which my boat has ample. Compound the new skipper had a novice crew. Well meaning but not proficient with the boat hook nor recognizing the danger of impending impact. Yes I kissed the piling a wee bit. I watched the pulpit get the push and then spring back. When I got the boat secure in her berth I went forward and inspected the damage. Mostly ok. The inspection revealed that the pulpit had received a bit of damage from the previous use of the anchor and chain, as well as the same type of spring off the piling I had accomplished. (there were marks)I was practicing going into my slip and I got a bullseye on a piling.
That's the good thing about buying a used boat with some dings and scratches. One more doesn't hurt as much.Only way to keep the boat pristine..... Keep it tied to the dock and have someone come down and detail it once a week.
