How to choose this product
A boom vang is part of a sailboat's running rigging connecting the boom to the foot of the mast. It keeps the mainsail properly tensioned and prevents the boom from rising when sailing off the wind. It consists of block and tackle. A rigid vang has a piston, and can support the boom when not in use, replacing topping lifts.
These devices are indispensable on all sailboats, small and large. Only certain multihulls and racing sailboats whose boom is connected directly to the base of the mast can do without.
The vang is sometimes a simple block and tackle running to a line clutch or a cam cleat. Rigid vangs add a piston to the tackle, and can replace topping lifts during mainsail furling or reefing. This arrangement offers more flexible and precise adjustment of the vang and an added measure of safety.
Hydraulic piston vangs, generally only found on large sailboats, have a hydraulic piston adjusted via a manual or electric pump. Their use is nearly effortless.
How to choose
The choice between a rigid and a flexible vang depends on the size of the vessel and the risks associated with the boom dropping if the topping lift is accidentally slacked. On the largest boats, a hydraulic piston model is a good option when the vang is too difficult to handle manually.
