PostSubject: boom rigging   boom rigging EmptySun Aug 25, 2013 7:14 am

I am a new CM26 owner/new sailor  have a couple questions.
-is there a way to hold to goose neck at a height when the sail comes down?  THe boom will fall out of it's track sometimes.  
-There is an loop under the boom that I am not sure what the function is.  Is this used to hold the mast up?
-ALso many boats have a line that secures the back of the boom to the top of the mast.  Am I supposed to have this?
Thanks for help

the part of the boom that goes into the mast should not go above the opening in the mast that you put the boom in.  there should be a line right there, you tie off the the cleat just below it.  this allows the boom only to travel up the mast to a certain point.

our cm26's have no such permanent line that keeps the boom up.  while moored, i use the main halyard.  it raises the boom up a little past normal, but no harm in that.  allows easier access to the hatch.

hope this helps.  others that read/reply to this will probably have a better terminology for all of this, and might be able to explain it better

Actually, the boom DOES go above the opening in your mast track. You should hoist your sail as high as you can toward the top of the mast. Otherwise your sail slugs are at risk of popping out of the slot. The line under your boom is to pull your sail tight after you have raised it to the top of the mast. That helps you flatten your sail and reduce heeling for speed and a more comfortable ride in heavier winds. Most sailboats use a sail track stop to fix the issue of your boom falling out through the slot in your sail track.

Here is a link to what I am talking about:

http://www.westmarine.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/Product2_11151_10001_11061_-1____ProductDisplayErrorView#.Uht53j9ASoY

I would love to see a picture of the loop under your boom to see what you are talking about.

And regarding the line from the top of the mast to the end of your boom, that is called a topping lift and they are not necessary but they are a great convenience in keeping your boom from falling when you drop your main sail.
When I bought my CM26, it came with a "pig tail", which is a 2-3 foot line with a clip in it that attaches to your back stay just behind the end of your boom. I have added a topping lift as a personal preference but that is all it is.

Hope that helps.

Thanks the sailstop is exactly what I was looking for.  By the way Diggs it looks like you have a drape over the raised cabin roof.  Where did you get it?
Thanks for the help

A lot of these boats came with them from the factory. Mine looked like it had one at one time but was included with my boat. So I went to a local canvas guy and asked to make me one. My wife made curtains for privacy.
It was his first but he did a fantastic job. Here are some close ups.

Hello all. New member here. Belonged to the old site years ago. Sorry to have been so out of touch. The 1st hoop on the boom and the hoop at the bottom of the mast is for the boom vang. A block and line system for changing the sail shape.
