    Ross B. has illustrated my previous point which is that rather than having new blocks designed for Lasers (and only for Lasers), the governing body could narrowly specify them such that 2 or more manufacturers' standard offerings can be used. This will mean that we have a choice and competition will keep prices in check. Frankly, paying close to $20.00 for three pieces of plastic and two or three rivets is crazy.

    No kidding! I have a few of the older screwed together plastic ones and I was shocked as to how little there was to the things.

    Can't happen fast enough. Get rid of the skullpuncturing sheet guide on the bottom edge of the boom while we are at it.

    You can install a soft one made from a cover from a piece of line if you wish. I did and it makes like much better.
