Aye for an Eye
If you want to bring some carbon fiber bling to your dinghy, raceboat, sport cruiser or maxi-yacht, look no further than the U-block line from Ropeye. Not only do they look dead sexy, they’re super-strong, nearly weightless and useful for all sorts of applications that don’t call for hi-tech roller- or ball-bearing blocks. The carbon fiber frame encloses an anodized aluminum low-friction ring and a Dyneema strop that’s used to attach the block wherever it’s needed. There are four sizes, with safe working loads from 2,000lb to more than 8,000lb.
From $177. Ropeye, Ropeye.com
