    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.

    Boomkickers use two coated solid fiberglass spring rods to provide the force necessary to support the boom and mainsail.

    The rods are clamped into teflon anodized aluminum end pieces and attached to universal mast and boom fittings. Fittings are included along with machine screw fasteners, the proper drill and tap and hex wrench. The mast fitting includes a round slide which, used in the luff groove, avoids drilling into the mast.

    Flat slides in varying widths are available from the factory. The slides can often be inserted at the sail opening above the gooseneck and slid down reassembling the fitting in position. If slides are not usable, the fitting can be attached directly to the mast using the same drill and tap provided for the boom.

    The custom extruded boom track is contoured to fit both round and flat bottom booms. The track has an adjustable clevis pin to set the maximum height the Boomkicker will lift the boom. The track length forward of the pin allows the boom to move higher if needed.
