Boom Brake?
« on: December 13, 2006, 20:24:02 PM »
Has anyone experimented with a boom brake on a Mini? 

I have never used one on my 37' cruising boat but met someone who claims that he uses one when SH'ed on his 40' cruiser and has never had an out-of-control gybe since. 

If that's possible on a Mini, when SH'ed I would probably choose to gybe earlier & more frequently than I might choose to without a boom brake.

What are the pros & cons for us older guys to consider?

Do they make a carbon version? :) The ones I have seen are HUGE!
