Boom Gallows

James & Jacqueline Best

I am looking for a boom gallows for my 32.Any used or new in good shape out there for sale?

Bud Taplin

I have new ones available, but do not know of any used ones. I will send you the info by email.

James & Jacqueline...

Do you need just the wood piece or the whole assembly? I have the wood piece from a W28 which is as wide as the one on the W32 according to the drawings. Not sure if it would fit your uprights though. Anyway, I have one available. I'm pricing it at whatever teak is going for these days (minus a WOA member discount of course), so it's kinda spendy but maybe less than a new one. Of course, it IS located in the Pacific Northwest so shipping might quash the deal.


Bud Taplin

Teak is going for at least $25 a board foot these days, and the gallows wood is about 6 board feet. That's about $150 for the wood alone.

Jatoba and Ipe on the other hand are around $8/bf. Both do fine left uncoated. They're just as, if not more, pretty than teak when clear coated, too.
