Re: Low buck projects- Let's see 'em!
Since our boom is low enough to hit your head on the way out the companionway, we've gotten into the habit of securing our boom to the starboard side. We have a bungee cord that pulls it toward a stanchion, and tighten up the mainsheet. The opposing forces keep it from jostling around. If there's a storm coming, we'll use clothesline instead of the bungee cord to make sure everything is tightly secured.
