don't really know what you're looking for. if you go here Dragboats.com - Photo Gallery - Main Menu randy krohn has about a million pics of boats going down a track with all sorts of rope deflectors.

the rule is, minimum .049 3/4" tubing, 45* from scoop to gunnel, connected top and bottom, so the rope won't catch on anything from behind your head to the outside of the boat. and if you get an idea for what you want to do, get in touch with ed anderson and run it by him, as it could save you some grief. if you want, pm me your phone number and i'll have ed call you... :)
it's also kind of helpful if you have the engine in the boat with the scoop installed, so you can get a visual for what will work.
