Jay, I have been making up a vang for the tack of a cruising spinnaker. Consists of a Garhauer series 25 fiddle block with snap shackle, a single block with becket and snap, and 35' of 3/8" braided dacron line. A 1/2" D shackle is used to replace the pin on the headstay turnbuckle on the bowsprit eyeband, facing forward. The fiddle block attaches to it, and the single block attaches to the tack of the sail. The line comes back and is adjusted from the foredeck, and secured to the sampson posts or a bow cleat.

This should also work with your "Tacker".

FLASH... Large inventory of used sailboat equipment, parts & supplies at great prices. After a 10-year circumnavigation in a Westsail 43, the owners are now clearing out all the excess and getting back to life ashore. Outfit your boat with well-kept equipment and save yourself a bunch of cash in the process!
