As your boat bears off downwind, and the sheets are eased, the Hoyt Jib Boom ™ maintains precise control of the jib’s leach. This results in remarkable performance improvement and ease of handling.
The typical base placement (center of the pedestal base) is 10% aft of the headstay. This is not a critical location, but rather a “Rule of Thumb”.
Various obstacles can obstruct the pedestal base position.
- Leach twist perfectly trimmed downwind
- Self tacking upwind
- Self vanging downwind
- Up and downwind jib control based on a simple & effective principle
- Sail more easily and more efficiently!
- White Powder Coated (base only)
- Perfect trim of your 100% self-tacking jib Wing and Wing downwind
All knuckles are bent to 57 degrees. All pedestals are set at 23 degrees. All angles are calculated on a perfectly flat and level deck. Wedges will be required on many installations to make up for deck camber. A universal black molded urethane wedge which can be cut to fit is available from Forespar®.
