sailingdog The end casting on most booms is removable. if you take the end casting off you can get access to the interior of the boom.

Rickm505 Sounds like a simple 2 to 1 purchase. Just rerig it the way you found it.

replacing the outhaul

I want to replace the internal outhaul system in a Kenyon boom that I have...

Last weekend I attached a runner (made out 50 feet of light line) to the end of the outhaul at the tack end and started pulling at the clew end. What arrived at the hole at the end of the boom was a fiddle block. So.... I'm assuming that there must be an internal eyestrap within the boom that holds the block. If this assumption is correct, there must be a way to attach a new pulley system to this internal eyestrap. But I don't know how to get to it unless there is access to it along the outside of the boom. Do I have to take apart the boom in order to get at the eyestrap? I've goggled Kenyon booms etc., but no luck.
