Re: Rigging spinnaker sheave

This makes me nervous. You can get big loads on the spinnaker block and a failure would surely come at the worst possible time. I'd go with the bolts as worked for others (sounds like your mast may be down, so drilling & tapping should be easy). Also, using a jib halyard for the spinnaker will likely give you the wrong geometry and lead to fouling the halyard(s) on the headstay.

What kind of boat do you have?
