I need help running halyards...

On the O'day 192 I just bought, the two halyards are run back to the winches on the cabintop, but they are run through stand up blocks, but when tight the blocks pull back and allow the halyards to rub on the cabintop, can I replace these with a cheek block? Without drilling new holes? There are 4 bolts for the stand-up block, and they were not well installed, both leak. Maybe I should plug them up? cheek blocks only use 2 bolts right?

something looks odd in that arrangment.

The halyards shoudn't be runing thru at angles thru stand up blocks, that will move when in tension.

You need a footblock there to redirect without play..the play caused by the movement down or sideways of the standup blocks change halyard tension that changes boat sailing qualities.

redirect the halyards thru non moving blocks, or a deck organizer.

If someone else here doesn't help you in an hour or so I will help you, busy now..OK?

Also a boat that small doesn't need the halyard to go to the which, maybe we can fix you a better system

I was wondering why it had winches too, but the former owner was old, maybe late 60's? Maybe he wasn't strong enough. If I could just get rid of them, that would be ok too.

OK..what you need is to repalce those there by 2 of these CLICK HERE

Then to hold the halyard, install one of these CLICK about 1 foot before the winch going thru this CLICK that fits in the cleat.

Then you're ok, the rubbing doesn't hurt because the halyard will not move...but if you want to get really pro..get a few of these and install underneath.

Thanks a lot Alex, it looks like those footblocks might even fit in the diagonal existing holes where the current stand up blocks are, then I only have to epoxy two on each side. Should I just get rid of the other two blocks too? I appreciate it.

Leave the winches...look at the above post.

If that is not what you wanted, tell me. Leave the winch...one day you need to hoist soemthing or a MOB and will appreciate the winch..

The block between where the halyard rubs and the winch, the other side of the boat is identical
