Doing a jib car haul retrofit and the "seaway conversion" to low profile, I thought that I would try to make it a 6:1 in the process.

I'm short one swivel cam and one block, I can make a single or a double work.

Working on a budget and hoping to have something really soon, so if anyone has anything laying around and would like to make a few bucks or possibly trade for something else that you might need please let me know.

Also open for ideas for a 6th block, if any exist.

Thanks

I tried to e-mail you on a sail tube but it bounced. I have a double seaway block. Contact me off-line and we can discuss.

Pretty simple and very cheap. You can do it 5:1 also, I just bought a new mainsheet at 6:1 length and thought that I would see if anyone had a extra block or two laying around, if it doesn't work out then I'll just do the 5:1.
I'll probably post pictures of my in the hobie thread when its done.

DVL(Dale), I'll shoot you an email now, I got your messages on the other forum but not in my email, weird, I'll look into that also. I'm building my sail tube this week so it would be nice to come look at yours. AND hopefully get that double block from you.
