I had a fitting go on the boomkin due to rust a year or so ago whilst sailing in 35knots. Fortunately the boomkin supported the rig without it as I didn't even notice it until I got back into port. I changed the wire whiskers to stainless chain. I better go check my turnbuckles though. I generally engage my running back stays now whenever the weather is really bad, that way if the boomkin goes the running stays might hold the mast up.
