Blocks, Washdown Pump, Spinnaker Pole Chocks, Line


Aaron Norlund

Hey all,

I'm selling a few things to help fund our deck refurbishment:

3 1/2" Snatch Block

2" Snatch Block

65" Dyneema core, Polyester jacket - 7/16"/11mm - very low stretch line

4 GPM Shurflow Washdown Kit

Aluminum Spinnaker Pole Deck Chocks


Cheers!
Aaron

Aaron,

How do the chocks work, and how are you storing your pole on the mast?

Frank


Aaron Norlund

Frank,

The chocks mount to the deck at either end of where you want to store the pole, then the ends of the pole clip into them, keeping the pole in place.

Instead of that system, we're keeping our pole attached to the spinnaker car, hoisting the inboard end up a long track and clipping the pole to a ring on the starboard chainplate.

Cheers,
Aaron


Frank and Melanie Scalfano

Aaron,

I would like to see your setup for the pole. I have been considering ways to get mine off the cabintop.

Frank

Frank,

My mast is down while we repaint the boat and spars and replace the chainplates and rigging. I'll shoot some photos of it all once it's back up. If I don't, remind me!

Cheers,
Aaron

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!
