Running roller furler line outside stancheons..
 
Anybody done this or know how to do it?
My boat has little enough sidedeck room as it is without running lines up and down it.
Thanks.

My roller furling runs outside the stanchions. I have small blocks on the toe rail that lead from the pushpit to the pulpit and then into the furler drum. Works fine. See the photo for the details.

All i see is a big white boat....
that's better than mine.

How about some part numbers of these blocks that take compression force? Or just manufacturer. I can look it up.
thx,

Harken makes some special blocks that run the furling line outside of the stanchion. Check their website.

You can use this type of block to run the furling line outside the stanchions. See this post.

Thanks for the great info and the link to the previous post.

If you look at the port toerail and follow the blue line, you can see the blocks shackled to the rail. They are pretty small, only about 1" across.

Thanks patrick, now I see them.
I was looking on the stancheons before, not the toe rail.
