That's awesome. Great shot, great idea. I went and checked my block and think I could possibly get the tennis ball or tube to work. Of course the twin sheet block is a different arrangement than your stand up block, but it would probably work.
Today I think I'll start to remove my T-track so I can slide on my new fairlead car blocks, and will bring a tennis ball and some old tube to try out both.
I took a bunch of my wife's family out sailing this week and most of them had only had traumatic experiences sailing with bad sailors in SF Bay in typically harsh conditions. Had 15 knots and a perfect sail, other than this damn twin sheet block continuing to lay down and force my genoa sheet to ride over the sharp edge of the stainless steel frame. They didn't know it was possible to sail fast and happily without fear and screaming. It's so nice to give people positive experiences on boats.
