Hi Ken,

Was the mainsheet on the boom rigged correctly to start with? It is hard to tell on the video but it looks as though it was the forward thingy under the boom that broke. We were warned when we purchased Cream Puff that only the middle under-the-boom-thingy was designed to take the loads required.


Nice video!


With best regards,

Mark
