    Default Galvanised block supplier?

    Title says it all. I'm looking for a supplier of galvanised blocks for bowsprit shrouds. I noticed the other post on the topic, but I'm just replacing old ones. Can't seem to find what I need on Classic Marine, Toplicht or colin frake and web searches are so-so.

    I need 1 double sheave and 2 single sheave +beckets, all taking 8mm rope.

    What does the panel think?

    Hi Seagreen,

    Have you tried contacting Davey & Co in Colchester. They are likely to have what you want if they do not they will know someone who does.

    Regards

    S.P.

    Davey and co didn't seem to stock them when I checked their site, and I'm lookig for something a bit less expensive than Toplicht.

    I would give them a call or drop them a mail with your requirements (sheave dia and pin size might also be useful). Not everything they have is in the catalogue...................

    It might be worth phoning Woods of Crediton or Macsalvors at Redruth. They sometimes have ex Naval blocks and the price should be ok.

    I shall noodle up to Woods in an idle moment, as I live near and had forgotten about them. Thaks for the suggestions everyone.
