Re: What is This Piece of Metal on my Boom

On my boom I have two of these pieces. One attaches to the mainsheet blocks. The other is just hanging around. I sort of figured out it connects to the hook that is crimped to the backstay in order to stabilize the boom without using the mainsheet when the boat is at dock. Of course, that might not be the real reason for it...
