TE, how about some pictures of that new shinny vang?

I too am a fan of Garhauer, as chef2sail mentions, they are great to deal with.

Their blocks seem to have some issues? My marina owner has used some of their blocks on his boat with poor results. Some others in the marina have used their blocks also with poor results. It seems that the bearings can't handle the loads as advertised, maybe moving up a size or two would solve the problem. Of course they are probably fine for cruisers, these results were on club racers boats.
