". A small wind shift will send the boom over. "
Waves roll a boat from side to side. IMHO, gravity is more likely to start the boom moving on its downward slide, thru the eye of a following wind, and then "whacko!". At night, specially when cruising, I drop the main (hate night time drops and changes), lose some speed (but surprisingly little) and leave it at that.
