Ratchet Block Modification
(SUI Fleet - Sent in by
This mod has been developed to hold the
ratchet blocks in position.
Elastic to stop the spinnaker sheet block
moving too much - reduces deck abrasion.
Close up shows where to tie the shock-cord,
and also my 'spring covered in tape, to keep the block
away from the deck gelcoat.
note: I also do this but slightly
differently. Using a single length of elastic route
it accross the boat and it also holds the kite halyard
out of the cleat on the drop. I also tie the elastic
around the base of the block.
