Re: Boom crutch?


Hi Miles,

I have preventers for both main and mizzen boom.  The preventers run from the sheet purchase on the boom to a shackle installed on the chain plates (carabiners on both ends).  In addition to keeping the booms in position on a downwind run in light wind and sloppy seas, they also help keeping the booms out wide when I have flopper-stoppers hanging from the boom ends.
