Agreed. It looks from the picture that there is an unused bail just aft of the vang that could have another block in-line then lead to the mast base block without creating any more significant obstruction that the vang currently does. The blocks in the pic. look to be Garhauer 40 or 50 series blocks with a safe working load of 2,800 and 3,000 lbs. respectivly. They should be up to the job.
