The Wichard Gyb'easy boom brake is a pretty ingenious and simple device. Outrageous money for a simple molded piece of aluminum and some stretch line, but patents exist for a reason. The only downside is they are limited to 400-500 sf mainsails. Don't know why they haven't made a larger one.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
