Ronstan Core Blocks and Shocks, Episode 26

Episode 26 core blocks

Installing the Ronstan Core 45 stand up block

This week I upgraded my mast base blocks with Ronstan Core 45’s, and a couple of older Ronstan double bearing blocks.  The reason for the double bearing blocks is the higher load on the jib halyard, and Frac spin which takes the Code 0.

I am always surprised at the loads the Ronstan blocks are rated, and this is a great chance to give them a good run.

Also a bonus this week is the Ronstan Shock aluminum fairleads.  This are great for so many applications on the boat.  Watch the video and see how I use them.

Get out and enjoy summer, and Enjoy the video.
