Wanted: 12' 6" or Longer Boom

I am looking for a replacement boom for our Cal 2-29. The boom was bent when I bought the boat and it is time to replace it so we can get the boat in the water. The original was a 12' 6" "Jensen Section" boom. If possible, I would like to find a little heavier boom to replace it with. Preferably on the west coast or the shipping charges will probably be prohibitive.
If you have or know of anything, please let me know.
Thanks

I've got a new internal reefing boom in Alameda. It's 15'8" long but easily shortened by drilling out a few rivets, removing the cast end fitting, and cutting it to any length you desire. It's set up with 4 sheaves at both ends, one for outhaul and the others for reefing, etc. Cam cleats at the tack and gooseneck fitting. Boom is new, silver anodized, but has gotten a few nicks getting moved around the deck. Would like $500. roverhiatyahoodotcom

Hi Peter

I am looking at a couple of others right now also but they are a long way away and shipping will probably be prohibitive. I am interested in yours, but I will see if these others may work out. I will get back with you in a day or so on this one.
BTW - The stove is great! Thanks again.
