Subject: Replace gooseneck if boom rotates. Advice please.
Info: (1084 views) Posted: Saturday 2-2-19 04:47:45 PM
Relatively new owner, and sailor. The boom on my Santana 22 rotates, I imagine so the torque is less when the main wants to pull at an angle other than straight up. The tack pin part of gooseneck broke and now I use a velcro ring that goes through the tack and all way around the boom. Actually works surprisingly well, but I guess it's time to do it right.

I've never worked on a rotating boom before, or any boom for that matter. Any advice on where to get the right parts or things to look out for?

Thanks.
