Tonight the parts arrived from Nautos – USA for the boom vang. I took a few minutes to install the hardware tonight after work. The mast looks like it has a connection for the vang from before. The only part that doesn’t fit quite right is the curved key to fit in the boom. It is a little too large for the existing setup. I’ll keep looking for a slightly smaller key to replace it with (they are cheap). I got the rope as a remnant at Defender Marine over the weekend.

Hey. What do you use the small block on the mast for? Right side of the last picture. Have one my boat. I’m new to sailing.
I don’t think I used it for anything. It may have been for a halyard, but the boat had blocks on the deck and the halyards were run to the cockpit. I found a lot of extra blocks that had been added to the boat that I didn’t use – things were added over the years and old items were never removed.
