A boom vang or kicking strap on a sailboat used to exert downward force on the boom and thus control the shape of the sail. Boom vangs helps control boom height which determines twist, or the shape of the mainsail leech during different wind conditions.
Sailboat Block & Tackle sets come with both of the blocks and a cleat to create a full boom vang system in one product. Simply select the purchase that you need and the working load based on your boat size.
If you are expecting a lot of light wind sailing and want to add some extra shape to your leech, add a rigid boom vang to hold up your boom so you don't have to. Instead of having to install and remove a topping lift, just keep a Sailboat Rigid Boom Vangs on your boom to keep it up even while you are gone.
Hydraulic Boom Vangs are used on larger sailboats and controlled by manual or electric hydraulic pumps.
