I can always cut the rod to a better length and re-thread it. It should work out ok. I like the look of this vang on the boat, so I guess that means I have to make fit.

I was looking for a pulley for the sheet line to replace the factories devise and found the item below at this link:

The Block is 10mm wide x 15mm long , 2mm Wide at the bracket
Swivel post is 8mm long, 1.5mm diameter and the deck spacer is 1mm High

Price is $16.00 USD free shipping -

The clip thingy in the boat is about 20mm long overal - hard to get my micrometer inside there. But this one should fit.
Serenity Vang looks good, does it clear your railings full out?
Thanks for the link.
I have a home made pulley I may use, if not, that one will do fine.
