Boom Vang mast anchor point
My old mast foot had a hole for a boom vang to be attached. That didn't work well. It wore the drilled hole out. I now have a new mast foot with no allowance for the boom vang to be connected so am wondering if something like the RF 146 mounted near the base of the mast would be sufficient. As the mast base has a stainless collar at the bottom it would probably have to be mounted approx 100 - 125mm above the foot. Any ideas/help would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance

Probably will work. That is what is on my mast for the vang. Assuming you trailer sail, make sure when the mast is down that you have enough clearance between the hardware and the top of the cabin.

I will be visiting my daughter in St Kilda arriving Sat 1/11/14 until Sun 8/11/14. If anyone nearby is able to let me peruse their layout of an RL I would really appreciate it. I can be contacted on 0439776406.
