    Hi – I have a mark 1 wayfarer which I am gradually putting together and I do not have any fittings on the end of the boom – can anyone with a mark 1 describe this arrangement for me please?

    Can you post a pic?

    Work out who made the boom, what shape is its cross section, then you can source the fittings.

    I am not sure how to secure the sail clew, set up an outhaul or how to attach the main sheet –  at the boom end there appears to be a pin protruding from the centre which the plate is slotted onto and secured with a ring as shown in the pics.

    The clew outhaul is fixed – use a thin lanyard from the cringle around the stubby horns on the end of the boom and back to the clew, depending on the lanyard repeat 2 or 3 times.

    To attach the mainsheet use a single block with becket, an example here.

    Attach the block to the “slotted plate” with the shackle. For the transom use a double block to give a 3:1 purchase. The mainsheet starts at the boom end, secure it to the becket with a bowline.

    Hope that helps

    Ah wow that does really help! I would never have worked out how to do the outhaul. Thank you – I may have some further Mark 1 questions as I go!
