Reasons,

All of the blocks you'll find in big chandlers are good. If I had to buy all new though, I'd really look around for user-serviceable blocks. That's to say, look for blocks that can be taken apart! I have Schaeffer all over right now.

A good set of wood blocks (teak, ash) with metal straps and keeper pads for a bronze shaft, are nice. They don't mar your deck, and they're easy to service. Also, blocks with rubber housings are good as they don't nick and scratch stuff.

Defender.com is good.

Cheers,
Aaron N.

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!

See the full list here!
