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?

St Anna 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.

Your SToboom manual.

Any chance you still have a copy of the Stoboom manual that I might obtain?

CamWms,

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.

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

tock 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.

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
