|Stryker72||They even provide excellent service on small orders. I bought a 4:1 setup for my Javelin from them and needed to add a standup. While they did't have it listed on the web I called and they said just include it in the comments section, and it will be an extra charge of $5. Harken and Ronstan didn't even come close.|

I too have had good luck with Garhauer. One neat thing with them is if you need a part tweaked, or modified, they will work with you to provide what you want, at a decent price. Good folks........

We're heading off to Greece for 2 weeks. I'll try to get some pics when we get back.

TE, how about some pictures of that new shinny vang?
I too am a fan of Garhauer, as chef2sail mentions, they are great to deal with.
Their blocks seem to have some issues? My marina owner has used some of their blocks on his boat with poor results. Some others in the marina have used their blocks also with poor results. It seems that the bearings can't handle the loads as advertised, maybe moving up a size or two would solve the problem. Of course they are probably fine for cruisers, these results were on club racers boats.

|sailingdog||Garhauer has a very good rep and is OEM for a lot of boats now, including all the new Catalinas. I've used their blocks and have been very happy with their customer service.|
