Nice job. Now that I see the boom with an extension, I agree that it must have been a stubby thing to begin with. I don't know much about the flex differences between the teak and the new material, but I'm sure you'd see indication in the paint before any problem.

Boom modification Rev. 1

Last winter I modified our boom with extended length and a manual 1:1 winch. Well after a season of use it was still too much work managing the dinghy. This winter I added a traveler track and a 2000# winch. Life should be easier now.

You’ve done they same thing I did. Harken small boat car and track on the underside of the boom. Lift the dingy up, use the traverler controls to move the dingy out to the end of the boom, swing the boom over the side, and away we go.

The main difference is I installed a Harken 16 self tailing winch. I guess I am still a sailor at heart.

Nice Job.

I’ll post some pics tomorrow.
