sailingdog Mick—

Wasn't busting your chops... I was making a very serious point—if you don't know the difference between a boom vang and a mainsheet—you're really going to have a steep learning curve.

Besides, I wasn't the one questioning you... Mitiemp was.

BTW, his questioning is valid, as it makes no sense to mount a boomvang to the companionway, as that effectively kills its utility. However, it is fairly common for mid-boom mainsheet setups to be terminated near there.

Without photos, can't really know what is really going on.

QuickMick I'll take pics today and post 'em monday. While the inmates may be running the asylum, you guys are a plethora of knowledge. thanks much

sailingdog I can't see anyone ever installing a boomvang to the bridgedeck. That pretty much destroys the full utility of the boom vang.

sailingdog If he doesn't know the difference between a mainsheet and a boom vang, the OP has some other, far more serious issues to deal with....

sailingfool Ditto whaty SD said. The vang MUST terminate at the base of the mast, or whenver you trim th emainshet you;ll need to also adjust the vang. Seems lijke that would be a pain.

I'd bet there's been some confusions omewhere along the line, and if you look around th emast collar, you;ll see a spot for connecting the vang

sailingdog Without photos, it is hard to say...but the cabin top sounds like a much better location. The boom vang should ideally go back to the mast base or very close to that point in order to function properly.

boom vang set up

the P.O with the BO rigged the boom vang to the little step protruding from the companion way slats. I couldnt imagine it being in a more inconvienient place, especially as it allow water to collect in the created channel.

I am thinking about moving it toward the bow and mounting it atop the main cabin. has anyone done this/have any pointers? should i be concerned about moving the pulleys as well to keep the same distance from said cockamamie set up?

thanks
Quinn
