Almost everything that Harken "recommends" is wrong or overkill. They're trying to sell you blocks, not what what's most economical or efficient.

I have to agree. That link shows a Harken 2629, which is what I am using but not totally happy with. Odd that Harken would recommend something different than they actually supply to Hobie.

I on the other hand have to strongly disagree, I love my Harken carbo ratchmatic blocks. Do NOT buy them directly, Harken has a huge markup. I have found a place that sells them for what I feel is a very reasonable price.

Sam, you may be very happy with the 2629 on your 16 - as I am with it on my 14 and 17 where I need to dump a lot of sheet in a tack to keep from weathervaning. But it is overkill on the 16. You also cannot sheet as tight (block to block) as you can with a 194 modified with the eystrap on the side.

The list price on the 2629 is $246.05
List price on the 194 is $217.75

That's nearly $30 of overkill.

oK, I think I finaly got the correct links. the current one is still right at $200, but IMO a much better block

I got introuble, because Rick who runs Catsailor.com makes part of his earnings by selling his products at his online store (I have bought stuff from him a few time and am very happy to do so) did not appriciate a post that took his business else were. So, Sorry to the Hobie Dealers here, but he did ask.

Hey guys,
I was just trying to be helpful and share a link I thought was a good link that references what parts the poster is looking for. How much one wants to spend depends on how good they are at searching and Googling.

Didn't mean to stir up the pot....

It was a good link! There is really nothing wrong with stirring a pot every now and than.

It is just a discussion about which blocks people recommend. I had a few extra $$$ when I bought mine and am very happy with them. I also spent a few extra on the sheet.

http://mauriprosailing.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=CTGY&Store_Code=MPS&Category_Code=MAFSWI

8 or 9 MM Red

Although at the time, I had no experience with sheets, I am now (4 years later) still using the same sheet and extremely glad I spent the money. The Swiftcord literally flies through the blocks (even in light wind), does not tangle in its self, does not get heavy when wet (good and bad). I have heard great things about Salsa line and other lines but will recommend this line any time I am asked.

I also have the micro air blocks on my jib. Now, I did skimp quit a bit and am using a .05 a foot black line that I got from Lowes and has been just fine for the last 4 years. This sheet is in the sun practically 7/24 in NM and is holding up just fine.

Just my .02

Sam
