Dizzy-

Do a search for boom brake on the forum and you'll find a lot more information. The three major boom brakes out in the market are currently:

1) Dutchman Boom Brake
2) Scott Boom Lock
3) Wichard Gyb'easy

Of the three, the Scott boom lock is the most expensive, the Wichard is the least adjustable, and IMHO, the Dutchman is the one that makes the most sense to purchase and install.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
