  5. Hey there yep use long boom i got 96 beam and never had a problem set up on the corner of the boat 2 straight back and 2 90degre out on the side what is important is the depth at wich you set your riggers so that they dont get tangle on a release i always set up my Inside deeper then my outside riggers plus dont do like (SABONATION) and use stiffer rod holders for your dipsys dont use cheap plastic ones and use long rods for your dipsys and your dipsy rod should never be over your rigger boom closest to the water possible thefrenchman
