Default tie the boom

I started windsurfing back when you still had to tie the boom on with rope. My board was a mistral competition light. I had the regatta sail that was basically a triangle, but brought me more fun than I could have ever imagined. I was hooked to the sport instantly. My fingers were nothing but blisters from uphauling but it didn't matter. :-) I remember going to a sailboard shop and an instructor there showed me how to tie a new knot under the boom when the boom was inline with the mast. It was definitely a much easier and tighter knot. Do any of you remember those days?
