Harken El­e­ment blocks

Practical Boat Owner - - New Gear -

Stand: Harken, J219

This new range of blocks has been engi­neered for the cruis­ing mar­ket, with the aim of cre­at­ing a cost-ef­fec­tive, strong and re­li­able product.

The sheaves run on plain bear­ings and are of fi­bre-re­in­forced ny­lon, while the side cheeks are made from hard an­odised alu­minium. At­tach­ment is via a tra­di­tional stain­less steel spin­dle and shackle.

The se­ries is avail­able in 45mm, 60mm and 80mm sizes and will ac­cept lines from 8-16mm di­am­e­ter. Sin­gle, dou­ble and triple blocks are in­cluded, with op­tions in­clud­ing fid­dles and cam cleats.

The com­pany will also have its lat­est light­weight, yet strong, Fly Blocks that are de­signed for use with high-tech lines at the show, along with the new Re­flex 3 top-down furler for asym­met­ric and code sails on larger boats. Prices: from £39.31 harken.co.uk
