Re: 1981 Islander Bahama 30 Topping Lift

I have a B 30 that had both a topping lift on the backstay and one going to the top of the mast. I got rid of both, and put a BoomKicker vang on. They make the boom self supporting by using a couple of fiberglass tension rods. Love it WAY better than a topping lift. there are no lines getting in the way.
