Rigging a Bare Tube Carbon Boom

by Craig Thompson

Below is a series of articles from the Fleet 13 Website on rigging a bare tube carbon boom and spinnaker pole. This project involved rigging two booms at once for USA 7346 and USA 7611. Note that this project was done just as the double spinnaker pole system was gaining popularity, but we unfortunately opted to rig these booms with the conventional single pole system.
