Brass Vang and modified Downhaul rigging.

Recommend installing the brass vang. Original cotterpin-to-eyelet setup can jam in low wind conditions and prevent the boom from swinging to the other side during a tack. 

As described in the Victor vang installation instructions, after installing the brass vang, wrap and glue the lower part of the vang mounting plate against the mast.  The wrapping must capture the brass plate.  If not installed this way the screw will pull out.
