Boom Vang

Hello, I am considering adding a rigid vang to the boom of my boat. The boat has a 13'' boom and its made from .125 thick aluminum extruded into a obround measuring 3 x 5. I will be able to mount the vang approx. 25-30% down the lenght of the boom from the gooseneck and still maintain a 35-45 degree angle from the mast. I have a 250 sq. foot sail. My question is whether or not my boom can handle the stresses of the rigid vang? Any thoughts on this?
