Re: Gennaker downhaul on CS27

Faster, that's exactly what I wanted to do in the first place, but I couldn't quite find the right hardware - was hoping someone else knew of something that would work. I've seen the clamshell fittings for attaching a bimini, but then there's the whole "where does the bock go now?" question. I also saw a stanchion fitting from Harken that their blocks can go on, but I'm not sure it lets the block articulate enough to avoid straining the fitting's collar. So I'm back to wondering the best way to attach a block to that location!
