Re: Is a Vang Really Useful on a mid to Large Boat?

I find preventers more useful especially on broad reaches and ddw...vangs not on every boat

long booms for example dont really need vangs but thats just my feeling and experience...

especially on old wooden boats...

now for dinchy sailing and small boat racing hell yeah

pull that vang down hard, get some bend in the boom and rake that b.................

jajaja
