* This is ''supposedly'' the source of the [[BritsWithBattleships Royal Navy]] acronym [[FunWithAcronyms BOHICA]]: Bend Over, Here It Comes Again. It's claimed that the acronym references this trope, but it's also likely to be an example of GettingCrapPastTheRadar.

* In KurtVonnegut's novel ''God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater'', Eliot Rosewater accidentally kills his mother when he takes her sailing on his small boat and tacks. The boom swung across, knocked her off the boat where she sank like a stone.

* ''TopGear'': Happens whenever the trio are tasked with turning cars into watercraft. Inevitably, James May decides that making a sailing car is so much easier than a motorboat-car (which it is) and neglects this trope. Cue the boom smacking into his head every few minutes.

* Subverted in ''[[DragonridersOfPern Dragondrums]]'', in that Sebell, nautically inexperienced, doesn't react when warned to get out of the way of the boom. Fortunately for him, Menolly yanks him out of the way just in time.
