This is directed to those with the 'end of boom' mainsheet rigging:

My mainsheet simply exits the portside block on the boomkin and is tied off to the large aft cleat.

It's never really been a problem but I've often wondered about the absence of a cam cleat for the mainsheet on my boat and I've been contemplating adding one (w/ swivel & fairlead) on the boomkin. Just seems like having one would make it more convenient. On the downside it might be a 'toe stubber' when having to work on/around the boomkin.

What do others have/use to belay the mainsheet (if anything)?

FLASH... Large inventory of used sailboat equipment, parts & supplies at great prices. After a 10-year circumnavigation in a Westsail 43, the owners are now clearing out all the excess and getting back to life ashore. Outfit your boat with well-kept equipment and save yourself a bunch of cash in the process!
