This carbon fiber boom will be fitted to a custom 18m racing carbon spreaderless rotating wing mast which is nearing completion. Both mast and boom are dressed in clear-finished carbon for maximum appeal. The boom was resin-infused using ATL Composites' Kinetix epoxy infusion system for superior strength. A split female mould was made for the external shape of the boom and then a secondary mould was required to produce the internal box-section spar. The boom is designed to catch and house the mainsail when dropped. The sails will be supplied by Doyle Sails from the Sunshine Coast Qld and will be state of the art racing sails.

The owner is hoping to have the rig stepped next month.

This exciting project is nearing completion with the structure and main spar done. We are now installing the fittings and finalising the finishing details.

The shell is resin infused carbon/foam with a decorative clear carbon Twill exterior. In order to achieve a good clear carbon finish on the outside and to also be able to infuse the part we had to make a mould of the boom. We created a plug in order for the mould to come together as a split mould which it then released from each side of the part.

This boom is for a Spirited 380 which will be fitted out with a new carbon fiber mast and racing sails. This will be quite a show piece once rigged and we can't wait to see it all come together!
