YACHT ROD™
The High Performance Spring-Loaded Mechanical Boom Vang
Precision design in three sizes. Excellent vang/boom support for performance cruising and racing. White powder coated
aluminum & polished stainless steel. Supplied with spectra cable ready to add your tackle system. Your 4:1 equals 8:1 when
installed on Yacht Rod™. Can be led to small winch for additional power. Spring return holds boom.
Brackets for mast and boom sold separately. Mast and boom fittings are listed below. Caution: Oversheeting or leaning heavily
on aft end of boom can bend the boom or the Yacht Rod™. The main halyard shackle should be snapped to the outboard
boom end, in port, to prevent damage to the Yacht Rod™.
