I spoke to Ted and he was able to repair his existing vang. I contacted J/Boats and learned that J/Composites is now using the Nautos Telescoping vang on new builds. This is a link to a vang that should be a direct replacement for the Hall Quickvang model B12.

I was able to repair my original kQuick Vang. The pin that holds the wire in the tube at the boom end had sheared off. Just had to take fitting off which did require heat and put a new pin in.

After hearing from Bill and before I was able to repair mine, I reached out to Nautos-USA. They gave me a different model # for the J Boat vang which is 91192. The pin to pin measurement at rest is 167cm.
