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
