After a horror week of my dizzyness, started a different med this morning which had a very good result within a few hours so went for a short sail at the local.

Was well powered up with the combo and enjoying just geting wet dispite the chop. well the session ended up being shorter than I expected, yes another boom failiure for a mobber. Luckilly for me it was the cheap arse rope on the clamp that severne put on their expensive booms, not the boom its self. I should practice what I preach and check my other booms tomorrow. I drifted a bit to the sand bar at pengos and got out my spare rope but could not get the old rope out of the clamp arm as the knot was jammed in hard and I couldnt push it through. 

Without having to dial 000 FESA was there in a flash in the form of Lunny. In no time his liquid metal had formed a pointed blade with which I could pry the knot out with. Thanks for the loan of your screw driver Craig, and good to catch up after what seems like an age. After this decided not to push my luck and headed in. 

Moral is, check ropes regularly like I normaly do but didnt this year, carry spare rope and leave a long tail at the end of boom rope that jams into the clamp arm so you can get a good pull on it. FESA are not allways available in these situations.

Though short, awesome to get out with a clearer head.

SSW 14-20 knots-Patrik 92-Koncept 6.2m-Techart weedy 30cm

Very nice day but underwhelmed with wind backing off. Out with Geoff, Chris S, Evan. Sailed in the Sothern channel slicing through the surface weed clumps. Could feel the tugs and see your groves later, interestinfg sail:-)

Did my community service when spotted a 7 foot tree limb wedged into the mud so only the very tip visible. Walked this to nearest the bank. Heavy bugger when lifting it out! Just those moving deadly speed traps to contand with, LeCarp but not a bother with that weedy lol...

Good news Roger about the boom and brain save. Bad news, I thought you would have had plenty of spare ropes from the stash of worn out  'soap on a ropes' at work

It was the original rope stropp but yes a dingly dangly bit is going to happen on all my ropes. Like the soap on a rope it makes it easier to pull out.

Swindy. I was going to replace my boom head rope a few weeks back when I noticed the reason it was frayed was that the boom head was partly broken and was chafing on it. Broken part now replaced and boom much safer. Check the other parts of your boom head.

Thanks Anita, will check it out later when I'm finished sun baking and swimming in the lovely cool clear water here in sunny Rockingham. Sometimes being sick has its benefits.
