    Hello - I recently purchased a Windrose 25' and I am attaching the boom to the mast. However, there appears to be two shaved off bolts in the mast. I'm not sure what was once there. You can see two shaved off bolts in the attached picture. Anyone have any information on what was probably...

  3. Sail Prindle 16 Catamaran without Boom

    Learning to Sail
    I purchased and sail a Prindle 16 catamaran. The Prindle comes with a boom. Although, this boom mounted off the mast is dangerous when it swings around during a tack. Since the sail has battens in it to keep the sail stiff, can I sail without the boom? In this case I would attached the block and...
  4. boom for C37

    Pacific Seacraft
    Our old girl's appendage (boom) is looking a little tired - bumpy, pitting. Can even see daylight thru opposite side! Time to replace. I think the mast is a Lefiell, so the boom is likely same. Are there any other older girls out there to confirm? Anyone out of the Cruising Consultants builders...
  5. Mounting hardware on Boom

    General Discussion (sailing related)
    I hesitate to post this cuz it demonstrates my abject lack of knowledge.. anyhoooo. I'm putting a reefing line on my C&C 30. The boom has a block mounted in the appropriate spot just aft of the leech but I'll need to mount a turning block on the luff end to run the line to the base of the mast...

    Gear & Maintenance
    I've got an old O'day 28. Recently the gooseneck (mast side boom attachment) broke in half. I can't seem to find a replacement gooseneck as they are no longer made and a conversion kit is pricey. Does anyone of a comparable boom if I just decided to replace the whole boom with a more updated...
  7. C&C 32 boom and mast

    Gear & Maintenance
    Hi out there I am trying to replace the goose neck and mast mount on my 1981 C&c 32. There is a lot of ware on both pieces so I thought it would be a good idea to replace both parts with new one. Does anyone know the manufacturer of the mast and boom for this boat. I appreciate all the help on...
  8. rebuilding a rudder and boom question

    Gear & Maintenance
    I will need to make a new rudder because the old one got water under the fiberglass and water logged and rotted the wood. The boom for my sailboat is basically a 2X4, 11ft long, too badly weathered and has splits and sharp edges all along the groove that holds the sail - these could cut or tear...
  9. 38' Mast, Boom, and Rigging.

    Boat Buyers & Sellers Forum
    I have a mast, boom, and all the standing rigging for a Seidelmann 299. I have the deck plate too so you could probably put it on anything you wanted. The rear stay is adjustable. The mast color is black with a bit of the primer showing through from the previous coat. Same color for the...
