The 8:1 vang on a J24 consists of two lines; a Cascade line and a Purchase line.
This 2:1 Cascade line comes with an eye splice on each end. You can luggage tag one end of the line to the mast bail and attach the other to the ﾓfloating fiddle after passing it through the singe block on the boom bail.
The line used for this Vang Cascade is a high performance, Samson AmSteel Blue line. This line is a torque-free 12-strand single braid that yields the maximum in strength-to-weight ratio and is stronger than wire rope constructions; yet it is so light, it floats. It is an excellent wire rope replacement with extremely low stretch, and superior flex fatigue and wear resistance.
