Hi Ian,

yes I make the Twin Spinno fitting which Carter was using in Palermo.
I have modified the design slightly based on users comments and have supplied him with Acetyl pole end fittings which work better than the Titanium ends he was using.

I'm thinking of doing my own as a project with Gohnam in MCE 440. Working on the proposal to submit to him and exactly how I'd do it in the garage.

I got in on an order of booms coming into the US made by Windrush Yachts in Australia. Matt Hansen sent me some pictures of this boom that he used in Palermo.

I am looking for creative ideas that people have used when rigging their new booms. Particularly what you have done differently with the carbon section as opposed to the aluminum section. If people could post some pictures of their rigged carbon booms it would be a big help for all of us who are going to make the switch.

Thanks for the help.

So I have finally got around to fitting out the booms that I bought this spring. I have been documenting my work on the 505 FLEET 13 BLOG HERE. Tons of pictures are posted.

Do not under estimate how long this project takes if you want to do it right. The booms that I am rigging are set up for the US/AUS style split bridle mainsheet with off-the-boom sheeting. Also set up for a conventional single port side pole with the option to add a second in the future.
