Barnett Butterfly

Today I got a great deal on an 85’ Barnett butterfly. Seems as if everything is there. The PO even threw in a paddle and lifejackets for the kids. In the rigging instructions I’ve found almost all of them have a boom vang, mine does not? My newbie question is... is it absolutely necessary to have a vang? Can anyone post pictures of their rigging without one? I should have taken more pictures of the rigging when I mocked it up. But there’s always tomorrow. I own it now and I’m looking forward to getting out on the water.

Thanks, Marc

Re: Barnett Butterfly

My son was very happy that there was a life jacket included that fits him!

Re: Barnett Butterfly

This was in the “owners manual” online. So far seems to be the best reference.

A downhaul is tied off to the cleat rather than a vang?

Going to mess around with it a little more today.

You can live without it and decide later if you want one. It looks like the mainsheet controls the boom pretty well.

Re: Barnett Butterfly

Is it just me, or does that young man make that 85 foot boat look small?!

( Sorry, couldn't resist)
Enjoy the new toy!

Re: Barnett Butterfly

Many kids have slipped out of their jackets because somebody forgot the crotch strap.

Re: Barnett Butterfly

I am glad it has one! Too funny we were just in the market for one and the PO threw in a whole box of lifejackets different sizes
