    Product Description


    Boomkicker's Boom Track Fittings are an alternative way for attaching the boom to provide extended travel and more adjustment. The new custom extrusions simplifies the design and lowers the price.

    Easier setup and adjustment - The new fitting consists of 2 parts, the track and slider attached to the Boomkicker. The track, designed for flat or round bottom booms, uses 3 screws, the same as the standard fitting. The slider is free to move, with the stop set by a clevis pin through the track. 3 positions for the stop are provided. With the added range and adjustment, setting the boom height for installation is less critical. To adjust the height later whether it's for a change in setup, a different mainsail, a bimini, or just to clear heads is done by moving the stop pin. More stop positions can be added if needed. Adjustment does not affect downward travel which is handled by the flexing spring rods.

    Lots more upward travel - When straight the Boomkicker is at the top of it's travel. At that point, the boom should be at it's highest operating position. Although the standard boom fitting allows some further upward travel of the boom, with the new fitting, the sky's the limit. This is great for racers during accidental roundups or cruisers who forget to set the vang when sailing downwind in heavy air.

    The Boomkicker model K0312 works basically the same as the larger models, but instead of attaching directly to the boom, a webbing sling, suspended between the two spring rods, supports the boom.

    Designed for smaller daysailers, these Boomkickers are easy to install with no drilling or tapping required. All parts fit in the luff groove of the mast. For trailering, the design makes rigging and de-rigging a snap, simply remove the boom and fold the Boomkicker up against the mast for storage.

    The sling, because it does not attach directly to the boom, allows these models to work with the simplest of goosenecks. Even if the boom just slides onto a pin at the gooseneck, or can roll, the Boomkicker can not push the boom back or restrict it from rolling around its central axis to follow the sail.

    Note: Uses webbing sling at boom instead of track fitting.
