Best Blocks for the Money?...

We replaced every block on our 41 foot 22,000 lb boat with Garhauer''s roller-bearing Lite blocks. (All the sheeves also.) It''s been a great investment and looks beautiful even after several years.

We also installed their roller bearing genoa cars and can adjust them by hand under load in any wind condition we''ve found.

Entire design goal was for the wife and kids to be able to adjust sails by themselves. We achieved those goals for far less money. If I had to it over again, I''d do the exact same thing again.
