Summerwind Then and Now:

GMT carbon Pocket Boom when new
Summerwind now - 4 years later

About 4 years ago, GMT was part of a great refit project on the 1929 Alden designed 100' schooner Summerwind. GMT built two carbon fiber pocket booms in our hand painted "faux bois" finish to match the Sitka spruce masts. The first picture above is from when she launched after the refit. The second picture was taken and posted on Facebook by Mark Bandy (manager of East of Maui) dockside in Annapolis, MD in November 2012. As you can see, she is as pretty as ever, and her carbon booms look as convincing as they did 4 years ago!
