Snipe Boomkicker

Snipe Boomkicker Seoladair Boomkicker

The Seoladair Boomkicker works in conjunction with your existing vang tackle to support your boom, allowing you to keep the leach of the main open in light air. Also (and perhaps more importantly) supports the boom when the mainsail is down, so rolling your main is a breeze and you no longer need a topping lift. The big improvement is in the installation. No more clevis pins and multiple rods to adjust the length and return force.

Instead, the unit arrives ready to use with the correct spring length. This applies for a Proctor Spar (or any boat with a luff groove). There are no holes to drill and all you need to install it is a screwdriver. This version of the boomkicker uses slug slides to mount in the mast track for easy removal and no need for a permanent installation.

To outfit a Sidewinder mast you will need to remove the slide, drill and tap, or rivet, the flat bracket to the mast. The gooseneck fitting is tied around the gooseneck.

Sidewinder Mast & Boom Fittings

Sidewinder Mast & Boom Fittings

We stock all parts for the current Sidewinder Gold and Silver masts. The only difference between the two that we know of is the vang-plate/mast-stiffener. One is short and gold(10" long) and the other is long and silver(49-3/4"). The jib halyard sheave box is a Holt Allen HA9b. The thru-boom block for the pole launcher shock cord (mounted on the outboard end of the boom, port side) is a Harken H088 bullet block. FYI - the older Black masts from Sidewinder are no longer produced. The 14-16' Boomkicker helps hold the boom up and the leech open when sailing in light air or downwind to prevent stalling.

Sidewinder Spreaders

Sidewinder Spreaders

The Sidewinder spreader bracket seems to be in use on all Sidewinder masts regardless of whether you are using Selden (Proctor) or Sidewinder spreaders. The original Sidewinder spreaders were not adjustable. The new style have a sleek design. The outboard ends keep the shroud captive and are full adjustable in/out by way of a clevis pin adjustment. The angle adjustment consists of a threaded rod that accepts an allen key (hex-head) for adjustments. It also had a scale so you can keep the spreader adjustment symmetrical.

Snipe GRP Mast Fittings for Whiskerpole Blocks

Snipe GRP Mast Fittings for Whiskerpole Blocks Snipe Mast Fittings
Carbon or Fiberglass

These Snipe mast fittings serve a dual purpose. The first, to give you a convenient place to hang the whiskerpole launcher block and second, to protect your mast from whiskerpole chafe when setting and retracting.

The carbon fiber version offers greater wear protection at half the weight of the GRP version. The GRP (aka Fiberglass) version is more economical and comes with one lashing hole pre drilled as well as lashing line for hanging your launcher block.

Recommended Attachment
We suggest bonding the fitting to the mast to create a secure placement. To bond, we recommend using 3M 4200 Bonding Compound (MSC043). It will be strong enough but is much easier to remove than the stronger option, 3M 5200 Compound.

The perfect solution to both problems that will keep your mast clean and scar free for years to come!
