Thumbs up Think Safety

Please think safety.

A heavy weight, sailing overpowered on a fully extended boom, in cold water in a remote location is foolish.

A light weigh, sailing a fully extended boom on a warm summers day, in a popular location, on a big board and light onshore winds is a different kettle of fish.

Just because the extension range is available it does not make it right to always blindly use it to itís max range.
