      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

Carbon fiber boom attachement points

Recommended Posts

Ok gang, I'm looking at getting a carbon boom done here. It needs some attachement points for the vang and mainsheet. I'm looking for pics of the molded glass bit that sits on top of the boom, that you can pass line through, and tie a block to the boom. Having a bit of trouble finding them.

 

Many thanks!!

For vang I've seen webbing wrapped around the boom for about a foot travelling aft, makes it into a compression load vs a shear/point load. Mainsheet, simple few webbing loops around the boom, same as most boats are doing now, regardless of what material boom they have.

 

Pics of what you found?

And if you can find a way to keep everything in place without drilling any holes, all the better. If you have to bolt/rivet something in place (especially near the middle of the boom) see if you can do it with only one tiny hole...
