I have just finished building a motorsailer
, Robert's PCF 40 and now I would like to make a decision how to trim to boom.we don't have a rigid boom vang
and I am afraid we will not be able to fit due to the proximity of mast
to the pilot house and it seems to me that there is no enough space for rigid vang, distances are:
- from mast
to roof of pilot house 20cm
- from boom to roof of pilot house (vertical) 33cm
- from the connection point of mast and boom to roof of pilot house (diagonally) 40cm
Would you comment if I may fit a rigid vang?
...and if not what can be the solution?
Many thanks for your help
