Re: Turning block

Looks like a lewmar, but it could be any one of a variety.

I assume you need to replace the sheave? In which case you just need to measure the remaining ones and get a replacement. They are close to standard sizes. If you can't find one of the shelf ZephyrWerks can custom make then for about $30.

Re: Turning block

That what's in the photo is a deck organizer. A turning block is a beast of another type.
The correct terminology may help you if you are hunting for new parts for it, or seeking to find another one which matches the one in the pic.

Re: Turning block

If I may be so bold: it appears that you have two lines (red and green) running on the same sheave. Not a good practice!

I believe he has them doubled up due to the fact a sheave is missing.. Although I do agree with you.

Ahh, yes, I see what you mean... possibly just so!

Jim, I believe that you had it correct here. And why one would run both red & green lines together, on the same side of the boat, I have no idea. As usually they're run on the same side to correspond with the rigging lights. IE; Red on Port, Green on Starboard.
With the occasional reversal of this pattern on boats with 2 spinnaker (or jib) halyards. So that you can jump the halyard for the sail being hoisted, from the high side, while the sail itself is hoisted to leeward.

Re: Turning block

Thanks, Purchased the boat in December, first one. So what your looking at is the way it came. Have not gotten to figuring out the rigging yet. Too busy replacing bulkheads, Aqua Drives, starter motors, bilge pumps and hoses, figuring out why I have diesel in my bilge, how to replace the rotted waste tank, replace the dripless shaft seal, repair the Panda heat ex-changer, figuring out how all this stuff works and a list of minor things so long it makes my head hurt . All the while convincing my wife that it will all be worth it, the toughest part by the way.

Have gotten to sail her, three times now, and have blown out two of these sheaves. Have not found a site that provides good dimensional data but now that I know what the proper name (deck organizer) is perhaps that will help.

Thanks, I will keep looking.

Re: Turning block

Disassemble the organizer and get the dimensions off one of the remaining sheaves before they all blow up. You can buy sheaves in various dimensions from mfg. like Schaeffer Marine, etc. through your local chandlery.

Don't see an organizer that's exactly like yours so you may have one that's NLA. Hopefully someone will have sheaves that you can match the pin and outside diameter to replace yours. If you have to go with something new, try Garhuauer Marine, they were the cheapest source I could find
