In light winds (a lot of mainsheet out) the boom on my boat will hit ya in the head while you're sitting down. If you're sitting on the coaming, it'll take your head clean off in any wind, probably right at the lower jaw or neck level. No matter how you try an explain it to guests, sometimes they just need to get bit before they listen. I always tell them to "watch the boom" on tacks and jibes, but you always get one that stairs at the boom as it hits em in the face. Good crew is hard to find.
