In Ship Building terminology, The “Jibboom” was a Spar (Pole) extension located on The Bow (Front) of A Ship or Sailing Vessel, which lengthened The Bowsprit. In usage, The Jibboon provided for movement of The Sail Pattern known as The Top Gallant. By tightening The Jibboom, stability in this Upper Canvas was created. Later in the 16th Century, The Jibboom was also known as a “Flying Boom”, due to it being independent from other Rigging Devices and Rope Holds. The Jibboom can be configured with the use of “Stays” (or attachments), to manipulate no less than (10) types of Upper Sail Patterns for Sailing.
