Boom Vang

I just bought a 28ft Taipan sloop in Hong Kong (almost a copy of Cheoy Lee''s Offshore 27/Newell Cadet). The vang just loops over the boom - presumably no fitting in order to accomodate roller reefing. My question is - where on the boom should it attach. Also, if the mainsail is reefed at all, there''s no way then to attach the vang. What then?

Any thoughts, suggestions appreciated.
