|gibsea402||I have been using a Stoboom for about 10 years now. I like it and once it is set up properly it works well. I now need to replace the pvc luff track. Does anyone know a source, preferably UK or W Europe?|

I inherited one of these things on my boat. Beaut sail when it is up but heavy to put up and must be perfect when furling. I cheat and only furl it when I need to reef or put the boat to bed, but if cruising, I use lazyjacks and just drop it when I want to anchor.
I have to replace the spacer b/w the track and the sail luff.

Stoboom Manual request
ANy chance I can get a copy of the Stoboom Manual? A dockmate has Stoboom on an older C&C 34 and is trying to get it back in shape.

|CamWms||I have and use a Sto-Boom on my TOCK. I have a manual, and can copy it for you. Having the boom at a right angle to the mast lets it come down easy. I can take some pics of how it is rigged. The crank fitting under it on the mast broke and until I get it fixed, I do it all by hand. Because the sail is old, sometimes it comes out of the track on the way up, but down is quite quick and easy. This is my first big boat (summer '08) and I have not had it in very heavy wind or seas.|

|camaraderie||No problem...welcome aboard. I'm afraid the reputation of that early model is something akin to Windows Vista!|

Thanks. I'll keep asking around. I'm asking hood to find me an old manual too. Of course, they may want to pretend StoBoom was never their baby.

|camaraderie||Suggest you PM JeffH as Vitamin has not been seen in these parts since 2001!|

Any tips that Vitamin or anyone else can give me on using this system will be greatly appreciated.

HOOD Stoboom, mainsail furler
Jeff_H, your dad had a stoboom, but can you remember how the "line-drive" unit was positioned in relation (and distance) to the HOOD stoboom goose-neck? Thank you
