"In an exchange of emails today with Buzz Ballenger of Ballenger Spars, the mast maker of choice for Moore 24s, I learned two things.
First, that he grew up in Highland Park, not far from Evanston, and moved his company to California in 1979. Good decision. We’ve had a mild start to winter by Chicago standards, but it’s still winter.
And second, that of the two Moore 24 booms Ballenger makes, one slotted with cut outs to reduce weight, and one standard without cut outs, the lighter, slotted boom is the stronger."Something to think about, that!
