At the Mauri Pro Sailing Store we stock Forespar Yacht Rods that comes in three different sizes for all kinds of different ships. The yacht rods don't lift the boom but instead take the place of a topping lift, and hold the boom up and level when the main is furled. Forespar makes their mast and boom brackets to fit their particular ends exclusively to hold the extreme compression force. We are more than happy to provide all the information and help at our reach you might need to select Forespar sailing hardware and equipment. Our crew is ready to help.
