My new-to-me 1968 Grand Banks 32 came with a mast and boom but not set up. As a former sailor and with a desire to used it for lifting an inflatable onto the swim platform I set out to get it set up and rigged. Just this last weekend I succeeded. Although the canvas cover over the aft deck keep me from lowering the boom completely to a horizontal position I still had to hank on the sail one time just to prove to myself that it would work. At roughly 90sf I doubt it would have any effect in any conditions. I will use the mast for flags and pennants, and the boom for lifting. (Yes I know I need to build a new boom crutch.)
