Re: Crash jibe buffer
Concerning getting hit by the boom, why is the boom so low? Realize one would loose some sail area, but raising the boom a foot or two could mean the difference between life or death. Some boats have booms that are high enough to not be a danger, others are below head height when standing in the cockpit. I am considering when I make replacement sails to raise the boom up a foot, to clear my head.
Pros and cons?
