true. I have the dutchman on both our boats, and have not found a need for the blocks. The winch

a bit more..and feathering it out to allow it to 'brake' across slowly
Calling Dutchman before your purchase..and after for install support is key to getting it rigged right..Once installed..it is easy to use.
