The snakshackle on this fiddle block makes it a perfect upgrade for those who would like to add a quick release feature to their vang.
• Catalina 22 or Catalina 25 boom vang quick release fiddle block for those boats with a pop-top
• Boom preventers
Boats such as the Catalina 22 or Catalina 25 that have a pop top can benefit from the convenience of a quick release when the pop top is raised. Others may want to remove the bottom block from the mast so it can be moved outboard for use as a preventer on a long downwind run.
If you would like to upgrade any of our stainless steel boom vang kits with this snapshackle equipped block, just give our sales staff a call. We'll swap blocks for you and credit the value of the standard screw pin shackle block toward the upgrade.
