sailboat boom / furling mast
Seldén booms have a wealth of sophisticated features and can be equipped with a variety of reefing systems to suit different boats and the needs of different sailors. The booms can be fitted for traditional slab reefing or Single Line Reef, or be used for furling masts. The boom extrusions are relatively deep in relation to their width, allowing a lighter extrusion with high resistance to vertical bending. This makes them perfect for use with modern, stiff sailcloth and efficient Rodkicker rigid vangs. Inboard end The inboard end fitting contains sheaves for reef lines and outhaul. Spring loaded rope stoppers can be fitted to the inboard end as option. Every stopper is colour-coded to match the relevant line. The clevis pin connecting the inboard end to the boom toggle has a D-shaped head in order to prevent rotation. A perfect end The boom end is gently rounded. It is fastened with screws and is open at the back to facilitate maintenance and line replacement. It comes with a cast preventer bracket, a topping lift eye and numbered line compartments.
