another trick is to bind with a rawhide dog chew cut into a single strip, soak the rawhide before wrapping it round, then as it dries it tightens, clamping the pieces very tight. this is especially useful with slow cure glues.

Thanks for the info.I will stick with the ally boom for now but I will follow this ready for when for when I decide it really needs to be wood to be in keeping with the rest of the boat!.

Thanks again.

http://www.boat-building.org/learn-skills/index.php/en/wood/making-wooden-spars/

have a look at the above link,  good advice on tapering and rounding square laminated material.   The whole site is good for advice on traditional skills with many good videos.

Good luck.

Fascinating site !!! Will add it to my favourites. The only trouble is I might not get anything else done if I start exploring this site.

Many thanks

John & Sara, since I suspect that the paint on your hull is synthetic, as are the ropes with which your boat is rigged, as is the cloth with which your sails are made, I can see no reason why you can't sensibly use aluminium for a jib-boom. You can always resort to kidology, buff paint and grain the boom! Some old boats even have carbon masts, arghhhhh!
