Thanks Guys,
As the boat is 31 years old I'm sure some of it is outdated!

I did think of that but the boom has vange attachments, blocks, cleats
etc. attached so wouldn't these get in the way of the sail?

As I put the Grampian 26 on the hard last week, I thought I'd do a few repairs. I'm refiting the boom and noticed it turns on it's axis through a geared
3/8" drive on each side. Turning the drive turns the gooseneck.
What is the purpose of this?
I'll take some photos if anyone would like.
Thanks
