Wichard mast tangs- 2, one over the other..

Hello,
I am looking at the Wichard 9150 mast tang. This basically gives you an attachment for a block shackle up on the mast.

This tang comes in two "L" shaped pieces that are bolted together to form a "T" shaped piece. The ears of the "T" fit on the INSIDE surface of the mast. You cut a slot and fit both Ls inside and bolt them together. Then you rivet to the mast.

Does anyone forsee a problem with mounting 2 of these on the forward side of the mast one over the other?

thanks,
groundhog

If you went two high that would be a LOT of slot in ONE place

Why do you need 2?

One gives you a mounting hole for the toggle for the stay and another hole for the block for the halyard.

Here's a pic and an alternative that wraps the mast and while it needs holes for fasteners it doesn't require a slot like the Wichard.

Thanks.
Reason for 2...
-I have a furled inner sail with a soft halyard. Need to prevent the halyard from spinning and force the upper swivel to spin only.
-Desire to get 2:1 purchase on the inner halyard.

But, i just noticed from your pictures, that they both have TWO holes in them.
It may be possible for me to attempt both attachments on the same tang.
hmmmm....
