Maui Sails Boom Head

Product Description

A good boom is much more than some carbon tubes. The key elements of the whole system are also the length adjustment locking parts, and the boom head that attaches to the mast.

The design of boom heads has undergone regular evolution, but much of it is far behind the development of the larger rigs. So the result is that you may have a pretty good set of tubes that may be stiff and strong enough for the larger sail, but they are connected to an older design head that isn?t. This will make you have a wobbly connection regardless of the stiffness of the tubes.

When we conceived and designed the new MauiSails Carbon Race booms, the shortcomings of the available head designs (as well as the good things) were considered. We wanted a unique and durable head to go on these great products.

Using Rapid Prototyping we were able to see the functioning part direct from tooling drawings, in one off versions that only took a week to execute. This let us play with the levers, cleats, and other relationships without having to wait months for tooling to be finished. And we could see potential for failures and correct them as well.

There are potentially thousands of active sailors with carbon booms from many manufacturers who will appreciate the value of this quality upgrade. The MauiSails Boom Head is simple and inexpensive to retrofit and will make almost any set of boom tubes seem like a whole different experience.

Package includes

  • 1x 85mm bolt
  • 1x 70mm bolt
  • Frontend lever
  • Main boom frontend body
  • 2x 1mm boom connector shims (fits on a 40mm boom arm)
  • 2x 2.5mm boom connector shims (fits on a 36mm boom arm)
  • 2x plastic o-ring spacers
  • 1x mast friction pad (for SDM masts)

If your boom arm has a different arm diameter than 36mm or 40mm you can build up a thickness in front end area.  Older booms like NP X7 or older X9 with boom front tubes ~34mmm can be used by combining the 2.5 and 1mm shims.  Please contact us for instructions.

Please remember if you are going to use our boom head with RDM mast you will also need a boom shim dedicated for MauiSails Front End.
