Replacement Mainsheet Blocks


Well-Known Member
Hospadar, you can't use those blocks on a Laser. The boom blocks have to be either a certain Allen or Harken model. Viadana in general is a brand that I personally avoid due to past bad experiences (in another class).

LaserDad, I assume you're talking about the ratchet block. Which one do you have now and why do you want to replace it?

Can anyone make any recommendations on replacement mainsheet blocks? Didnt find much at Rooster - my usual source.
Usonedesign has stuff and those guys all race and cruise. Plus nearby. I like them. And budget is a big part of the equation. I usually buy the ratchomatics. About 110 to 115 bucks. Youll get a million different arguments answers here..I buy what's local usually or from vendors I like. West marine carries the carbos and there are 2 within 5 miles of me. And they have a nice sale once a year I try to scoop stuff up at. I got the last one from boat locker on sale for 105 bucks.
