Mick—

Wasn't busting your chops... I was making a very serious point—if you don't know the difference between a boom vang and a mainsheet—you're really going to have a steep learning curve.

Besides, I wasn't the one questioning you... Mitiemp was.

BTW, his questioning is valid, as it makes no sense to mount a boomvang to the companionway, as that effectively kills its utility. However, it is fairly common for mid-boom mainsheet setups to be terminated near there.

Without photos, can't really know what is really going on.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
