58mm is way too small diameter I'm afraid, if you think of the loads involved from the kicker,mainsheet,clew/outhaul etc when sailing, a boom has a lot of stress on it.

If you're after a carbon boom I've got a superspars one going spare (no issues with it structurally, have a Chipstow one instead). No idea what it's worth but it'd be better on a boat than in my garage.  Drop me an email if you're interested.
