I came from sailing traditional wooden schooners/skipjacks so I am not wholey familiar with some of these newfangled things.
Can you tell me what these are for?
This is a Cheoy Lee
Luders 36 Sloop
height is about 41'.
Picture 1: Are these wire rope
sheaves? The picture is blurry, but those are the wire rope
end of wire-rope halyards reeved through both.
Picture 2: Am I right in assuming one of these is a spinnaker halyard
? Is it normal to have 2 blocks? How are they used? Would only be in service
at a time since they would surely interfere with eachother? There aren't enough cleats
on the mast
if the main and jib/genoa halyards are made fast.
Picture 3: This block is on the forward face of the mast, about a foot or so below the spreaders, is it part of a spinnaker
Any and all information is welcome as well is sources of learning
more about how to use them.
