The wooden piece across the top of the boom gallows -- or more precisely, the u-shaped stainless pieces that attach the wood to the gallows, have come off on Robin. It looks as though the three welds have broken. So the wooden piece is no longer attached to the boat. What is the proper way to replace it? I see that there are holes in the ss tubing of the gallows. Should I run a long bolt through this and through the wood? That doesn't sound as though it would be able to stand the natural forces the boom must place on the gallows. Is there anything short of buying a new system that will work? Is there a better means of attaching the wood than the one that brok for me?
