Hi!
We're just now in the process of replacing our fast pins with a shroud adjustment system. I don't have an exact idea of what kind of blocks we can use. I was aiming at the ronstan series 20 triple blocks with a breaking load of 850 kg and a safe working load of 400 since I think I saw people having the Harken Carbo 29 blocks with a BL of 907 kg and an SWL of 449 kg. Does anybody know what to use?
Thanks!
Jan

I would put cost in when thinking about this and the Ronstan likely to not be as much as the Harken.
The Ronstan is also what most of the new boats are getting here in the UK and it is what we put on are boat this year.
Other people may think differently but I hope I helped
