Re: Main sheet tackle broken catch

Hi Matti,

We have had this issue in the past...the original is not a very good solution to a simple issue.
On the 54 they didn't use this system but had a plate welded to the underside of the boom.
When our last piece broke, our rigger made up a custom alloy plate and welded it into the slot underside of the boom.
He used a dyneema soft shackle to attach the block to this plate...much better!
