One issue on almost every small boat is no room for a garbage can. Another issue on "Whiskeyjack" is the amount of dead space below the galley countertop. Think, mark, cut, trim, screw together a couple of pieces of scrap luan for a lid, sand, varnish, Ta-freakin' DAH!

Nicely done bljones! I have been thinking about doing this exact same thing for quite some time, but as of yet have not gotten around to it. Thanks for sharing, looks like it will work out well, and may encourage me to get to it this spring!

Low buck block to run halyard to cockpit. These little heavy duty blocks (hardware store calls them pulleys) are rated at over 400 lbs for 3/8" line. $6 each.

Low buck batten? I'm curious how this will hold up. But it doesn't get any lower buck than a free yard stick.

That block is zinc plated steel. How much are you going to spend getting rust stains off your nice white deck? The previous owner of my boat used zinc plated screws to make a couple of simple repairs. You can't believe what it has cost me to repair the damage done when the screws rusted out completely! They all damaged the aluminum or stainless they were installed in.

Don't know what boat its going on, but 400 lbs for a halyard isn't much.

400 lbs is half the displacement of the whole dang boat!

Great idea- before you use it as a batten, though, give it a couple of coats of varnish to seal it, so that the existing finish doesn't stain your sails if it gets wet, and it won't rot as quickly.
