After 7 grueling months under da sea, my boom is back! Earlier this year in February I managed to loose my entire rig out at North Sound (see Survival at the Sandbar).
A few days ago, a kayak clean-up team from Walkers were in the North Sound cleaning up rubbish and came across this little gem. Luckily someone had heard the story, and gave my lady a call. When I heard “Hawaiian Proline”, I knew that miracles do happen!
I’ve since replaced it with an RRD boom, since it seems HPL have gone out of business. I really like the clamp at the front and the stiffness of this boom. I’ll scrape the blistering barnacles off, give it a good scrub and it should be good to go!
