Solid Boom Vang Install


Peter Linden

am thinking of installing a garhauer solid boom vang on my westsail32. as my boom now slides up when raising the sails, and drops to go into the boom gallows when lowering the sail, my question is what modifications to others make to the boom-mast connection to accomodate the vang? the folks at garhauer told me they have sold a number of vangs to westsailers, but this issue has never come up. im probably missing something here.

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!
