Boom Needs Replacement
Our sailing vacation with 3430 to Traverse City Michigan was great. Perfect weather. Sailing and sailing. Sadly we failed to notice an oak limb obstructing the boat ramp haul out area. Sheared the fore-stay, and down came the mast neatly slicing the boom just aft of the Vang "Keeper" track.
I see that I can buy a new empty boom from the store, but how do I remove the riveted hardware and fasten it to the new boom?
Anybody done this before?
