Re: Rigid Boom Vang

Mark thanks so much for your reply. I am relatively new to sailing but last fall during the Annapolis sailboat show the wind gusts were in the thirties. The boat had the tendency to round up and spill, a real blast. I can see how a boom vang would prevent this and perhaps that is why the original circa 1978 model did not come with one. As folks started racing it became an add on. If you have pictures I would love to see your arrangement. I see a 31.1 at a local marina and just yesterday we were comenting that her lines are just beautiful.
