should of stated BIGGER boats where the weight of the boom and SAIL is substantial

for example big boats you sometimes have to stand on the boom, I know I have sometimes and my weight plus the boom and no topping lift would mean snapped lazy jacks or something else

Islander 36 no longer for sale...its MINE!
