A week ago, on my way to S.Catalina Island, I was goosed by my gooseneck.  More specifically, a simple cotterpin broke and my boom detached itself from the gooseneck.  I just spent most of this last weekend taking apart my boom and gooseneck to repair this.  (Stay tuned for pictures on my web pages and maybe a projects entry.)
 In the meantime, if you haven't inspected this -- it's easy to overlook because it's INSIDE the boom -- within the last year or two, then it's definitely something to add to your annual maintenance list.  As Ron Hill has told me recently ... inspect, Inspect, INSPECT!
