Rigging question - What's this for?

Hi,

For a while, I've been wondering what the blocks on each side of my stern are for

I recently found this old brochure which shows them carrying a line through the back of the boom.

Is this simply to restrict the boom travel? Like a preventer? The advantage of this setup? Never seen it before.

Thanks.
