Blocks for 9/16" - 5/8" Sheet Lines

We busted a few old blocks recently so we need to replace them and beef them up with stronger ones. Please send me either the details so I can look online and get a good idea of what your blocks look like or/and send me a photo. Tnx

I have two Ronstan RF1100 blocks that will likely fit the bill. I don't have any pictures handy, but a google search will show you what they look like. They are in perfect condition.

I found a picture of all the blocks I have for sale. The RF1100 blocks are the large stand-up blocks on the right.

Hi Bob,

Thanks for your reply and the photo. The ones you have are the stand-up ones ... the ones with a square base plate?

Actually my las post was inaccurate. They have a four sided base that is not quite square. I believe Ronstan only made one type of base.

Ok, tnx for the clarification. But the blocks I really need have not base, they fit with a shackle on a deck eye. Sorry.
Tnx for coming back to me and please let me know if you have the one I need.

They look a bit small to me (mine were slightly bigger ... and they failed ... I need something stronger.

Hi Don,

Looks like what i might want is the block on the bottom right of your photo.
Could you give me the model number so I check on breaking strength ... as it looks like the ones we busted. Tnx

PS: sorry to hear about your boat loss ... I lost one boat a long time ago so I know what it feels!
