New Boom for Rival 32

Posted: 29 Jun 2011 - By: Rob Harvey
I'm thinking of getting a new boom for our Rival 32, does anyone have specs or a manufacturer for something like this?  I talked to the people at Selden and they had some info on the mast but not the boom.

Our Rival 32 has its original boom which is a roller reefing job converted to slab reefing.  The reefing process is a little difficult as there is very little mechanical advantage.  The reefing line runs forward on the boom to a cleat on the boom near the mast.  I can't really think of a good way of getting the lines to run to a winch without somebody welding up the boom.  At which point maybe I should just get a new one....
