Boomkicker on a trailer boat?

Feb 19, 2008

Last year we had the boat in the marina and I was convinced I should get a boom kicker.

This year we are sailing it out of our driveway - I'm wondering if that makes a difference. Does it add complexity to the rigging process? Is it worth it?

All you would need to do is slide the top out of the track on the boom when you take it off and put it back in when you rig. No real effort there.
