"One of the objects of my invention is to provide a new apparatus for, and a new method of setting and trimming the sails of a fore and aft rigged yacht, or other sailing vessel, by means of a continuous boom, which may be designated as a continuous axial boom. This boom runs forward and aft of the mast of the yacht, and said boom Fig. 1 is a diagrammatic side elevation showing the improved rigging. In this position the boom is set to the proper position when the vessel is close-hauled on the wind."
The patent act of 1790 established the rules for submitting a patent application. Each application had to be submitted with specifications, a patent drawing, and if possible a model of the invention. Eventually, models were no longer required.
