Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

If he can make some pretty blocks I'm in. Have had several of those shiny ones blow up on me over the years. Seems the old plastic girl is stronger then the blocks. I had to go back to the original teak blocks one time when I didn't have a new shiny spare.

Maybe we could have an Ice Cream Social at Bob's place and compare blocks? I'll bring the Hokey Pokey.

PS: I need a new triple block that fits 1/2 to 5/8 line for the main sheet. The TINY pin connecting the block to the shackle has lost it's head...Thanks Schaeffer....
