Searching for this block and cleat


Recommended Posts

Hi, I’m replacing the main sheet on my Tasman 20, and would like to have a floor mounted block and cleat. Does anyone know where I can find one of these?

Harken should have something suitable, Fosters are the agent in Auckland

This is what I’ve found from Harken. It’s two-part, and pretty big and chunky

And very pricey.

The issue you may have with that type of pedestal is engaging the cleat in a deepish narrow cockpit. But in a Tasman 20 you probably won't be loading the main so hard that you can't push it in with your foot.

there are not many options, this is the nearest I have found for a new fitting with an adequate SWL

Thanks. I got this recommendation on cruisers forum. https://www.velasailingsupply.com/viadana-swivel-base-w-adjustable-ball-bearing/?sku=VIA20.03&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIpKyaip3S8QIVhLaWCh0npQyrEAQYAyABEgJoLPD_BwE

 

Keen to find something in NZ as shipping atm takes ages.

Good to have a couple of options. Thanks for your post.

interesting, never heard of Viadana before. The SWL is listed as 140kg, I suggest you find an online calculator (see Harken's web site) to check this would be adequate for your sheet loading

noticed your one doesnt have the track on the step by companway,so you cannot adjust sheeting angle,just been looking at friends and noticed the difference.

This is the RWO version, available from NSB in the UK.

Or you could just use a Ronstan RF58.

It's a swiveling cleat with a stainless deadeye instead of a sheave, I've just bought one to end the mainsheet on a Noelex 22, which probably has similar loads.
