Hi Stefan, I agree with Mark. Could you post a photo of the full length of the boom so we can see. 
Kind Regards

Is the main sheet attached to the correct eye on the boom? It doesn't appear so in the picture.

After 2 consecutive unsuccesfull repairs, thef irst one held a year.
But the second one with reinforcements on both sides of the attachment block failed at the first sail again.
Eric suggested a sleeve could help.
Did any of you do this repair with succes before?

Thank you in advance for your help and suggestions,
