I'd go with Lewmar 60mm Synchro blocks...which have a SWL of 1760 lbs. and are designed for 8-10mm line. 3/8" line is 9.5mm. The single blocks are about $17.00 over at Defender.com. BTW, the sailnet price on the exact same block is $29.25. hmm... That's a pretty steep difference...72% higher than the defender.com price.

BTW, tried to post this four times last night, but Sailnet kept crashing... with the prices they charge, you'd think they'd be able to afford new servers.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
