Hi Tom,
when I commissioned my 37, I had a long and protracted discussion where to have my boom. I wanted it much lower as I’m only 5ft 8in tall and envisaged problems hooking on the main halyard and doing a harbour stow. Kai however was concerned about sail loading and head contact with a lower boom so we compromised and agreed a height which was then sent to Seldon to fix. Thus all vessels will have different boom heights, and expensive to change.
