Paul : You are lucky that as old of a boat as you have, that the boom ends came off easily!!  Those of us in a salt water environment have not been so lucky!!!

A thought

Thanks for the heads up.  I installed the new out haul yesterday.  My gooseneck has a pin thought it to keep from rotating. 
I would be interested in viewing the "new" fixed/solid welded version.  Could you send a pic or web site Noah?
Thanks,
Paul

Dave, thanks, but I don't see a solid/welded gooseneck.  Only one with a pin thought it.  Not sure if this is what Noah had in mind or something else.
Thanks,
Paul

This is what I was referring to from CD’s website:
“When a rigid vang is installed, it is important that the boom not rotate to eliminate unwanted load on the vang brackets. The new assembly uses a stainless steel pin through the casting and the center of the hex pin. When rigid boom vangs became popular this pin was added eliminate the rotation of the casting. As a result, the internal washer and cotter pin at the aft end of the hex pin are no longer necessary. The stainless pin secures the hex pin to the casting.”

Sorry Paul,
I recalled I had posted about the gooseneck and went with that link.  Scroll down one post and the solid gooseneck is there.  Noah nailed it as usual.

Dave, I looked at the link and are you talking about the one with stainless steel pin?
Hope you had a great summer.

Yes, same as the link Noah provided.  The previously rotating gooseneck is pinned to prevent rotation.

Had a great summer cruising the North Channel and some fantastic places along eastern Georgian Bay.  I didn't hear you on the radio or see you but, from your previous post, it sounds like you had a good season.

Thanks Dave, we did have a great summer.  Don't use the radio much.  Enjoy the peace and quiet.  Did explore a few new anchorages this summer.

This is a very timely post for me. I removed my main sail last weekend for some rehab work and need to overhaul the outhaul mechanism in the boom. My boat is 200 miles away from home so I'm going to remove the boom on the next trip and bring home to break it down and service what ever is needed.

As far as the outhaul kits from CD, is it the consensus that this is the best way to go for parts?

Paul,

This is also on my to do list and was wondering if you went with the 10:1 kit and how do you like it?

Kent, yes I did go with the 10:1,  it is probably over kill but it works so smooth.
