Internal outhaul in boom


Recommended Posts

Anyone have any advice on rigging a 6:1 internal outhaul in the boom to prevent twisting.  This boom is 13' long and has an eye strap on the bottom of the boom inside to secure the double block with a becket on the forward end of the boom.  (Double block with a triple constitute the 6:1 purchase)

Do you really need 6:1?  I have 2:1 and lead the outhaul to a winch.

I like to use an external 2:1 to amplify whatever is inside the boom.

Just run existing external outhaul from boom end sheave, to clew, and terminate bitter end back on boom adjacent to sheave.

You don't even need a padeye with an aluminum boom, just drill a hole and use a stopper knot on the bitter end.
