    Can anyone suggest a what are the best furling booms? I would like long rubber rollers and am thinking about small suspensions for the rollers that pinch the sail. I have only used a few furling booms and wondering what's the state of affairs in 2022. I would like to hike my boom with a high degree of rake to make open room on the deck with out worry of the boom jibing me. I need a longer boom and furler, to be able to roll it with high angle rake.

    What size boat is this for? Headroom under a boom can usually be had on larger boats. In smaller boats you would have to re-cut the sail and move the gooseneck up.
