Block Shiv Repair

Anybody ever replace the plastic shivs in riveted together blocks?

Seems a waste to toss perfectly good block cheek plates and becketts just because of UV damage to the nylon shivs...or what ever they are made of.

Doubt I could replicate the rivet but could easily grind one end off and knock it out then use a SS bolt....would not be as flush and user friendly to the deck but this is my Vang tackle so it doesn't see the deck anyway.

Relationships are everything to me..everything else in life are just tools to enhance them.


The purchase price of a boat is just the admittance fee to the dance...you still have to spend money on the girl...so court one with something going for her with pleasing and desirable character traits others desire as well... or you could find yourself in a disillusioned relationship contemplating an expensive divorce.

I think the usual way to get your shiv repaired involves giving a carton of smokes to the big guy with a tattoo on his face....

yes, have done it on both of my deck blocks to avoid much more work, and did just as you describe basically.

Well, I guess that would depend on their $ize and make. How much is ones time worth?
Of course, in my case I could make new rivets or modify them to take an oval head screw.

Some gear mfg's will sell new shiv's for their gear.

I was making the joke above thinking that "shiv" was just some sort of spellchecker gone wrong accident, but maybe it is worth seriously pointing out that it is "sheave".

I though a 'shiv' was a slang term for a knife?
