Re: Help me identify please..

just multi use purchases, could be for just about anything you need a purchase for. mainsheet, vang,etc. the snatch blocks are very expensive. new ones go for over $175.00 each or there about.

Re: Help me identify please..

Artistically arranged, Scoobert. Let's get the easy ones out of the way first.

3 snapshackles
one additional shackle.

A bunch of small blocks, and a bunch of smaller blocks with shackles integral.
That assemblage suggests blocks at the bases of stanchions for guiding roller furling lines back to the cockpit. Looks like enough for two roller furling headsails.

The blocks with the black rope through them look like a standard sort of "come along", such a tackle can be used to tension the windward running back stay when under staysail.

I haven't a clue what the very small light line multipart tackle would be used for, and nor do I recognize the round black one with three snap shackles.

The sort of medium sized black block could be used anywhere you want to help a line lead fair.

To me, and this is definitely amateur hour here, much of this tackle looks way too light for your boat. If so, you're probably going to be looking at upgrading a lot to reduce friction loads.

Oh, yeah, there's also a cam cleat and what looks like it might be a mains'l slide stopper.

i use light ones like that on our 63 ft for the lazy jacks on the boom with 6mm line,though the slightly bigger ones as anne says could be for the rollerfurler.

Re: Help me identify please..

black lines looks like a soft boomvang, and the small stuff looks like rigging for a sailing dink. and you have spares.

I am really surprised that someone with 45 ft ketch would ask this kind of a question.
