Mike and Ivana Meyran

I am plugging along in setting up my once "bare" rig. I have nothing setup for a downhaul or boom vang yet. The gooseneck is attached to the main with set screw, which I have left in place for the meantime. I am getting tired of the boom hopping along the gallows when I tack, and as you would guess, i dont get the greatest shape out of my main, especially upwind. Do I need to use both a downhaul and boom vang or can I use a downhaul alone and be ok (and preventer when needed)?
