Equivalent of snatch block, but for clutch or cam?
I'm wondering if there is a solution to quickly rig a temporary clutch or cam cleat. Here's why... when we went out on our boat for the first time a couple of weeks ago, we found that the clutch the mainsheet went through was bad. We needed the winch to do a reef but we had no way to secure the main sheet. I know I could have tied a rolling hitch on the sheet and then secured it elsewhere, but I'm looking for something more "temporarily permanent". Is there something similar to a snatch block, but that lets you create a temporary cleat point for a few hours or days until you can get your clutch or existing cleat repaired, and can take a fairly loaded line?
