Re: Stress crack main sheet boom attachment Maramu

Thanks for the replies, I ended up grinding a little bit more paint and it seems that the metal, is not cracked.
Hopefully our boom doesn’t break in half, do you have any pictures of your third attachement point?
There seems to be a thick layer of fairing/padding to make the weld look smoother, it has the consistency and is white and Grey like rusting aluminium so it made me believe that the crack was in the metal but it’s not the case
Our boom has 4 rings/eyes and starting from the mast we use the second one for our preventer when going downwind.
