The cleat on my boom has corroded and the line keeps slipping. I tried a smaller diameter line, but it tends to stretch. I hate to buy a new boom just because of the cleat. Any suggestions? Thanks.

tie a knot in the line once you rig. Bring an ice pick to untie the line after your session. Or lots of half hitches....
