Re: Is a Vang Really Useful on a mid to Large Boat?
your effectively bending the boom like that...this creates a pocket IF and only IF you have correct outhaul tension or in your case reef points.
on old sails its recomended to not adjust SO much cause you are strecthing and tightening up old fabric and a sail that would otherwise last many years simply cruising in a fixed position will quickly die like this
on new sails its great to slowly adjust and start tweaking your best sail shapes as the new fabric will strecth and conform to your sailing desires
very good point!
