Re: Halyard to Cockpit Challenge
it does not matter how many degrees the block is used to turn the line. 10 degrees or 180 degrees the friction from the block is the same. good quality ball or roller bearing blocks have very little friction and the larger the sheave the less the internal friction in the line. use one mast base block and an deck block or organizer at 90 degrees to the mast then back to the clutch with a fairlead to go over the raised section of the cabin.
