Re: What is This Piece of Metal on my Boom

Stray bit of metal in a place where skulls might be found?

Yeah, the technical word for that is "an accident waiting to happen".

But I'd agree, the topping lift could go there. ALthough it looks like a topping lift would be perfectly happen on that eye on top of the boom, and less likely to gash anyone or foul anything.
