Harken Carbo Furling Lead Block Assemblies -

These stanchion lead blocks have free-rolling ball bearings to lead line aft for safe furling from the cockpit. Use the 7401 40mm block on the bow pulpit as an inboard lead. The 7402 features a ratchet to control spooling when unfurling. The 7401 and 7402 have ball and socket bases to align blocks for smooth leads aft. The 7403 has a 29mm sheave and allows the furling line to travel outboard of the stanchion to keep the side deck clear. Mounts to stanchion with a four-screw clamp.

Harken Carbo Furling Lead Block Assemblies Reviews:


Great for intended purpose

This is an excellent set of furling blocks. The ratchet block works great, and with a bow-and-arrow technique you can furl easily, even under heavy wind conditions, and you can easily control how much sail you let out... without wrapping the line on a winch. And the fairlead blocks run free with little friction.

That said, the ratchet block is an "attractice nuisance", as they say in legal circles. We needed a turning block to winch my buddy to the top of the mast, and the block, right at the edge of the cockpit, looked just right for the job. Unfortunately, the block is not rated for much force, and it snapped.

No one got hurt, and I suppose it is a good thing this block is not stronger. If you were to do the same thing to free a jammed furling line, the block would snap rather than the furler ... But lack of strength is why I downgraded it one star. Incidentally, it worked well enough that I am buying a replacement.

The perfect furling block

Installation was a snap and the block works perfectly.
