    Ratchet Block

    New Sunfish owner. My sunfish came with just a simple swivel block for the mainsheet, in front of the cockpit. It can be difficult to pull in the sail sometimes, and I was wondering if a ratchet block would be worth it? At $75 or so. Also would a block like that be able to just be set to...
