Paul Whistler

On my current 32 Pablo, we use a track car on the rail for a moveable vang placement. The vang has snap shackles on the lower ends of the two separate tackles. We have also replaced the rear lower shroud pins with the correct size SS shackles. So on any point of sail we can reposition the vang lead from any position on the rail, to all the way forward to the rear lower shroud base as a vang and preventer for down wind use. This is the second 32 we have owned and have run the vang this way on both for a total of about 3 decades with no trouble. We do use the large red rubber snubber on the boom and we have cam cleats on the aft sides of the cabin house for the vang tails.
