vang / topping lift / boom brake..

Is there a product that combines the functions of a boom vang, topping lift, and boom brake in one?

If not, is there one that combines two of these features in one?

thanks,
groundhog

Uhm, err, eh? You want a single device that does engine tuning, off track maintenance, and a safety belt? You should probably stipulate that it must also be kind to your grandmother.

A rigid boom vang will also serve as a topping lift. It will not be kind to your grandmother though.

A rigid vang will provide a vang and eliminate the need for a topping lift. It will not function as a boom brake. Might also be used to beat your grandmother.

If there were, it would probably eliminate the element of entertainment.

Well, someone should combine the boom brake with the rigid vang.

OR....

Mount the bottom part of the vang on some type of traveler where you can run the bottom mount forward and to the port or forward and to starboard of the mast base. Thereby creating a preventer.

See, I could be a millionare...
