BTW, there's a good article in this month's Blue Water Sailing about installing and setting up a preventer...but I still recommend a boom brake instead.
Actually this is my second one. A few boats ago I installed one on my Nimble Arctic 25 Pilothouse. It didn't come with a Vang so the Boom Brake served a dual purpose. Not quite as effectual as a dedicated Vang but it did help a lot to keep the boom down on runs.
