Re: Best way to attach turning block to a cleat

What I do is just attach a short length of sheet to the block and then figure 8 around the cleat. Worked for me for more than 25000nm without any chafe or coming undone unexpectedly. easy to adjust the position of the block that way... more inboard or outboard to suit conditions.
