Fitting a boom vang

Post by Ken »

Hello all

I have a DF 800 Mk 2 with fixed wings.

Even though there is a traveller for the main sheet I think it

really needs a boom vang to control the shape of the sail. As it is the top of the sail tends to fall off too

much in certain conditions.

I would prefer a solid boom vang though a classic rope one would

do. The only problem is that the boom may be to low to get a good

angle on the vang.

Has anyone installed a boom vang as I have never seen one in the

photos of DF 800's.
