Sounds like your main is not up all the way if it hits the boom gallows when tacking. You may have to raise the boom at the gooseneck slightly to prevent that. The boom should just clear the gallows when the main is strapped in tight.

The boom vang is helpful when you have the main partway out, such as on a reach or run.
