Why a mechanical vang?

The answer is easy. The Hood Mechanical Vang eliminates the topping lift resulting in less wear on your mainsail. It gives you quicker boat handling and more control of your mainsail shape. In light winds the leech of the sail can be set accurately and it makes reefing easy. In use the vang is easy to adjust - there are a selection of pin positions for coarse and fine adjustment.

Choose from a range of tubes that best suits your requirements: Aluminum with epoxy powder coating for reduced weight, ideal for small performance yachts. Stainless Steel for maximum strength.
