Found a barefoot boom for sale on another site I frequent. He wants $125 for a:

Barefoot or training boom which ever you choose to call it.
Manufactured by Barefoot International.

Hardware included.
Not sure what daimeter pole sizes the bracket fits But I did use it on my Sanger with shims.

$125.00 or best.

Sodar, what's the deal with booms? I wanna learn how to barefoot, and I know that this is a good way to start, but how do they attach to the tower, or anything?? Does it put more strain on the boat, or have any long term effects??

125 sounds like a good price, just wondering if there is any catch to using a boom!

Your normal boom will attach to the ski pylon of direct drives and then a cord will attach to the D-hook of the keel. They do make a tower boom for newer boats as well.

If used properly I don't see it causing any harm to the boat.

Make sure it has two cables included also. Use to use them all the time. That is a great price.

That one looks like a non-contoured boom for an older boat, but still a good price.

Our Ski Pylon is still in great shape, so I think I might try and track this one down!! Now to get the money from dad...

For $125.00 you can't go wrong. Watch fleabay also.

As stated above, Make sure it includes the cables, and this looks like a straight boom, which is for an outboard, you would need a contoured boom to go from the pylon to the side of the boat while missing your windshield.

I use the straight boom on a 85SS. Call Barefoot Intl and speak with someone there. Spoke with Mike last week regarding mine.

This is not only for an outboard.

A straight boom can be used also for ProStars (94-96...and many others) and also an X-7 and a 197.

It doesn't matter if the boat is old or new. It matters the length of the windshield.
