boom vang set up

the P.O with the BO rigged the boom vang to the little step protruding from the companion way slats. I couldnt imagine it being in a more inconvienient place, especially as it allow water to collect in the created channel.

I am thinking about moving it toward the bow and mounting it atop the main cabin. has anyone done this/have any pointers? should i be concerned about moving the pulleys as well to keep the same distance from said cockamamie set up?

thanks
Quinn
