scosch is on a distinguished road
vang and preventer

Basic question from a learner.
Is there any reason that I cant use one block and tackle to serve as both a vang and preventer and just move the bottom block from the mast to the rail when needed? (I have mid boom sheeting)
The preventer would need more line which is messy but I dont lead them back to cockpit.
Similar enough ratios?
Why not?
