bent boom - what to do next?
i was supervanging in heavy air and was late in loosening the vang at the windward mark; I now have a slight bend in my boom. the deflection measures only 1/2" but it is visually striking! what to do? is it okay to just live with it for club racing? or, should i try to straighten it (seems like this might just weaken it further). Is it legal to sleeve the boom and does anyone sell the sleeving kit? thanks for any and all advice rb
