hydraulic boom vang
The M Series Vang incorporates an M Series Cylinder with a carbon fi ber/ Kevlar extension tube to produce a unit that operates in the same way as the Navtec Light Vangs. The standard version uses an internal tie rod to carry the tension load, while a gas-charged option is available where return pressure is required. Removing the tie rod reduces weight, with the carbon/Kevlar tube carrying both the tension and compression loads. In this instance, the tube is glued permanently to the cylinder and the clevis. The Navtec M52 Vang is suitable for use in predominately light sailing conditions, while the Navtec M64 Vang is suitable for use on larger boats where the loads are higher.
