WChevron,

Nope. The line would then ride against the mounting hardware rather than on the block. Think about it, you'll see what I mean.

That is the advantage of the Schaefer "Clear Step" and these new Harken OSLBAs. They are designed so the furling line when led outboard is both held captive and runs against the block fairlead.
