Re: Suggestions for a small boat vang

They sell the vang parts here :

On my Wayfarer I used the 4:1 Small boat Vang, which has a proper camcleat instead of those V cleats which I don't like.

To attach to the boom most commonly something like the "RWO Heavy Duty Vang Hardware" here is used, to give you a way to quickly disconnect from the boom :

APS - Boom, Mast and Spar Bails, Straps and Tangs

Then a bail or a padeye goes at the mast.
