Sailormann will become famous soon enough
Your blocks are indeed small - wonder if those were original ??? The PO may well have kept the nice Harken blocks for his next boat and replaced them with something he had lying around...and then again, maybe not

Anyway....

He may well have been using the winch to help him, as well as the boom vang. You may find that if you use the vang in concert with the mainsheet that things get a little easier...

I would buy bigger blocks - what you have looks a litte undersized.
