  • Good close up photos. Thanks. That inline block is slick.

    There's a short chainplate above the 5.5 swivel. Anyone know if it's available separately? Or suggest a solid adjustable alternative? Like this:

    I store mast up in lotsa wind, so I would feel better about adding a well-made 2-3" extension plate than a D shackle.

    That type of inline block is for use with wire halyards, if you are using line, you are wasting the $35 they cost.
    I started out with that on the N5.7, but ended up using Spyderline for the halyard, along with a small Harken block.
    You can see both setups here.

    the block works fine with non wire too -
    i am not a fan of wire halyards
    they require crimping tools
    they break, and strands can end up under your skin

    i will probably never purchase another - hm line is easier, cheaper and available in many local locations
