Genoa lead blocks

The plastic sheaves on my port/starboard traveler jib lead blocks are both chipped and will require replacement. I believe the mfg. to be Schaefer, have searched their website, but cannot find sheave replacements.

I could buy two new blocks at 180.00 ea. but that seems foolish, since the silver anodized alum. portion is in good shape.

Has anyone attempted just replacing their double line sheaves and if so, where would I find them?

Thanks . . . Steve

I have a guy in Colorado old sailing bud from the old days who will make new parts for what ever you want cost is about $75 for each part + freight but you can bet it will be right on or even better than the original.
Thats a good savings in my book. The parts would most likely be made of aluminum but he can do them in a plastic as well.

If you are looking for replacement genoa blocks, (or other blocks) check the Garhauer website. I have replaced traveler and mainsheet blocks on my 88 Catalina 34, and think the Garhauer gear is great for a cruising boat. They have several stand-up blocks that will fit 1" and 1-1/4" tracks for less than $50 each. The "old" Sailnet used to carry them, but prices always seemed to be the same from either source.
