Selden Boom question

I just bought this boom from a salvage yard to replace the factory boom for my 37' 1892 Irwin CC.
Im Trying to figure out what this hole is for? (See photo below)
It's located on the bottom of the boom near the aft end. Roughly 3 feet from the end. The overall length of the boom is 15'.

My best guess maybe for the out haul?
Any help would be appreciated.

Good thought. That's easy to do while I have it down.

Re: Selden Boom question

If the mainsheet is aft of the hole, then the line may well run around a block hanging from the back of the boom, into the hole, along the inside of the boom and exit at the front of the boom before going to a block back to the cockpit.

Re: Selden Boom question

Thanks everyone. Selden called me back tonight and confirmed the same, Main sheet. Looking for pix of this type of setup. It would be a great alternative to what I have now.
