Re: Rigid Boom Vang

Having just learned the hard way. I can tell you the weak link is the boom vang end fittings. Keep in mind with a rigid boomvang pushing up on it, the gooseneck needs to be able to keep the boom from twisting, even when a someone is hanging off the aft end of the boom trying to furl the sail.
