My Canadian built Contessa doesn't have a kicker/vang. I want to put that right. Any suggestions as to type, make, size/capability please?
 
Thanks

The standard kicker/vang fitted by Rogers is the Selden RodKicker.  Many boats (including my own) have retrofitted a Rodkicker.   Does the job well but to be honest I have not looked at any alternatives.
 
Hope this helps
