Are you talking about a boom bail??? If you are, you really should through bolt it and put a spacer over the bolt inside the boom to prevent the bolt from crushing the boom from overtightening... but that would generally require taking the boom off the boat, taking the gooseneck fitting off and then doing the installation, which is probably more work than you want.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
