Cool Missing Spinnaker Block

My Newport 30 Mark III doesn't have a separate block for the spinnaker. Has anyone added one, or do they all come that way?

I had to add one to my Newport 33. Fortunately, there was an extra hole outside the head stay on the mast head assembly. Buy a good high load swivel block. I use a 3/8" halyard.
