I'll second Jeff's recommendation for a higher powered tackle on that vang.. a doubled 6:1 will be easier to use/adjust under all conditions.
Just remember that if you're "vang sheeting" in a breeze one day, don't forget to ease the vang before rounding and easing the main out - the loads can be tremendous and you could break something...
