I know that this is a really obvious question to most but what exactly is a preventer and how does it work? Is it a couple ropes there to hold the boom back? or that boom brake? I am way off owning my first real boat, but am looking into getting a 16' Nacra or hobie cat so brushing up on the terms is prolly a good start
