Thanks. That sounds like the most elegant option. The only reason im so adamant about it is the guys at Boomkicker say that over time the rotation of it can snap the boomkicker fittings. Depending on yhe point of sail and the location of the boom i can see it rotating since the boomkicker is a rod on each side of the boom which can flex independently unlike a solid vang that cannot.
