Rigging The New Triple Blocks?
It just occurred to me: I'm not certain how to rig the new triple blocks for our mainsheet.
The line starts on the bottom block, tied to the Beckett. It's got to end up coming out the bottom block via the center sheave. So, let's say both blocks are oriented with the edges of the sheaves facing you, the the sheaves are ordered 1-3, left-to-right. I would guess it'd go:
Beckett to top sheave #1, to bottom sheave #1, to top sheave #2 (center), to bottom sheave #3, to top sheave #3, to bottom sheave #2 (center), and out through the cleat.
In this way, the sheet crosses over no more than one sheave, max, on any "run." Could as well start at #3 (right), as well as #1 (left).
