Repair and reinforcement of split boom
I let the boom get away from me while rigging my Skerry and split the boom where the gooseneck goes in.
Any suggestions on how to repair – and more importantly – reinforce the boom?
I’ve re-epoxy the split with thickened epoxy. Next I plan to wrap the boom a little past the end of the split with glass tape. Then I plan to use a French whipping of light rope over the crack and a little past the end of the glass tape. I’m thinking of at least setting the rope in epoxy to make sure it does not slip.
