HOOD Stoboom, mainsail furler

My dad had a stoboom on his 42 footer. The thing would work fine for a while but when all hell broke loose it would cease fuctioning. It also required a precise angle to the wind to work, a luxury few of have when things get really dicey. He went back to a conventional boom and mainsail. An expensive and quite dangerous lesson.
