I have been looking at replacing my boom as old one has significant damage around the kicker area. I have been quoted for Selden section B.087 which looks very different from the old boom. Allspars state on their website that the section is 2628 which when I looked it up appeared to be a section used in a number of dinghy classes but looks similar to the section I currently have but my supplier checked with them and they said that this was discontinued and the B087 is correct. I wonder if anyone knows anything about this because I didn’t want to go for something significantly different from what I have without checking it first. Can anyone confirm what Selden seem to be saying? There are pictures of the different sections attached
The B087 looks similar to the section of booms supplied with the newest Selden rigs (They also look similar to the dinghy sections).
Hope this helps
Yes it looks very similar to our boom which was replaced about 2006. Have a look if you want. We are back in the water as you probably noticed!!
