This issue is not with the boom. The issue is when the boom comes to a sudden stop next to your head along with the corrisponding noise (Hence the Name).

Perhaps the answer would be some sort of wheel or roller mounted either to the boom or possibly you head.

Now where is that French guy with the clever sailing designs????

Halekai-

LOL... we were going to send you to that bar T34C was talking about in a minute... since you seemed so interested in helmut...

T34C-

I think the bells would give you an auditory clue to the wind direction at least. BTW, the booming noise only occurs if the person's head has enough air in it...


Giu-

Just when I think I've seen the worst you can come up with, you stoop lower and dig deeper into those archives of yours... EWWW!!!!!

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.

On a more serious note, can someone post a picture of how to rig a boom brake?

Here's a photo of the Dutchman BoomBrake 500BB setup on my boat.

This is an overview of the whole setup.



These are details of the PX Powercleat that holds the brake line, the two deck attachment points at the chainplates, and the brake itself.

However, I do await Giu's version with anticipation... Should be good.

Here is a photo of my boom brake...

I can now stop my boat in 30', make a 180ş sliding controlled skid, and tack the other way....

The reason my mizzen boom is called such is because it's always mizzen my head.

Helmets and boom brakes are for wimps . . . and South Europeans.
