    Default Stancion mounted furling block

    I am looking to get some of these or similar https://www.sea-sure.co.uk/configpro...d-furling-rope
    but all said items from which ever manufacturer I try, appear designed to fit a 1" stanchion. Mine is 1.5" !! Any ideas about a resolution to this please ?

    Why not just get a small pulley block and lash it to the stanchion with some small size rope - say 2 or 3mm diameter? Say No1110 from Barton marine which are ball bearing 30mm Diameter. If it's a loose-ish lashing It'll self align.

    +1. Soft attached block - we use these, or a size up depending on rope size. Lovely light blocks with dyneema attachment. Think they show options for how to tie for correct alignment

    Are these Harken blocks any use?

    Thanks. I quite like the soft attached one.

    I got fed up with bashed ankles on my furling line. In the end I attached the low friction thimbles/rings you can now get together with a dyneema loop. You can mount them close to the stanction to give more space on the side decks and they are totally self-aliging.

    Forget the health food. I need all the preservatives I can get.
