Re: Small boat single handed hoisting

Looking at your deck photo it seems like you could get away with almost no holes in your deck. You should be able to bolt an eye to mount your turning block to the mast pivot bolt on your mast step, and as someone said above, you should be able to buy an extra block mounted on a track car that you could mount on your jib sheet track rather than bolt to the deck. (It will want to be further aft than you show it.) and so all you need is a cam cleat for the halyard.
