The Dinghy Boomstrut
· Ideal for:
Cruising day boats
· Maintenance free
· Fits in minutes
· No drilling required
With no extra parts or drilling required and is simply tied off at the mast to secure in place, negating the need for drilling. At the top of the rods, a fully adjustable webbing cradle supports the boom and as the cradle is not directly attached to the boom, it does not restrict the boom from rolling around its central axis to follow the sail when reefing.
· Patented flexing spring provides fast response and a constant force for vang efficiency
The boomstrut's lightweight, low-profile design features two flexible coated fibreglass rods which provide the force to support the boom. Pulling the boom downwith a conventional kicker causes the Boomstrut to flex upwards; releasing straightens the rods, thereby lifting and supporting the boom.
· Maintenance-free, durable design
Eliminates friction and sliding parts.
· Improved performance
Less weight and windage
· Easy installation
There's no need to replace your existing hardware - the Boomstrut mounts independently inside the existing kicking strap tackle.
