OK Dinghy Boom
Developed with the UK’s best OK sailors to optimise usage and reduce weight.
Extruded 6082 aluminium gives durability, strength and stiffness whilst being able to resist the marine environment.
The extruded profile features rounded bottom corners to ensure any head scraping moments do not cause serious injury! The rounded profile also limits the damage done to the deck when the boom is inevitably dropped when packing away. The rounded profile does not make the boom any bendier than others available on the market.
3 mainsheet positions, to suit different fit-outs, drilled through a neutral axis to resist bending forces with aluminium through bushes for soft attachment of blocks.
Offset outhaul sheave to ensure maximum outhaul travel.
Pad-Tii soft attachment fittings for kicker and outhaul to reduce weight and wear as well as give a neater streamlined finish.
The outboard end is tapered to reduce overall weight, as well as reduce weight where it’s not wanted.
There is a slot and hole at the outboard end to give different rigging options for the outhaul primary line.
Comes with an outhaul calibration sticker.
Holes halfway along the boom to attach JC Strap.
