How do you run the vang to the cockpit?

I have a Sabre 34 Mk1 and want to run the vang back to the cockpit. Were using a 4:1 vang with a cascade between a bail on the boom and a bail on the mast giving us 8:1. Just like on my old J24.

I have a deck organizer on the port side with a free sheave.

I'm trying to figure out how to get a turning block fixed up at the mast base so I can feed into the organizer. Seems to be OK with the boom on the port side but but binds up with the boom on starboard. I've been advised not to clip the turning block on the mast collar as it might result in leaks.

I've considered going to a double ended system, but don't want to give up a line on the starboard side organizer. We currently run main hlyd., main sheet, reef 1, reef 2, outhaul & vang.


Any ideas on how you solved this would be great. Pictures if you have them
