Default An example of what can be done

Last years Sail2Indonesia Rally produced this innovation. One of the cats carelessly misplaced a rudder. A local motor cycle repair shop knocked up this steel replacement. Pretty heavy, but it got them to Pangkor Marina in Malaysia where a less sturdy replacement was done.

I'm sure that a bamboo boom is possible with a bit of creativity.
