Re: Installing a Boom Brake

Our boat is end-boom sheeted, and for the mid-boom attachment of the boon-brake, we were concerned that the spar might break at the attachment point. To mitigate that possibility I through bolted stainless steel strips on each side of the boom to distribute the load and mounted the bridle in the center.
