We decided to go with the Harken 57mm Triple Carbo stuff, as you and I last discussed, Alex. Only I decided to go with the Ratchmatic instead of the manual switch, because the manual switch on that line is actually inside the hole in the middle of the sheaves, requiring you to stick something in there to flip it on/off. Kind of a dumb design, IMHO.

The bottom block was not in stock at the local place or their distributor, and we were told it'd be 7-10 days. Should be in anywhere from today to next Monday, depending on whether it's closer to the seven days or the ten days, and depending on whether they meant only business days. We're sure hoping it's this week, as we've only three weekends left until haul-out , and the next two are race weekends.

But wanted to give the local business our business and their price was competitive with the most aggressive of the 'net prices.
