Harken 18mm T18 Carbo Block (no kidding)

With the new T18™ block's 125 kg (275 lb) working load and and 7.2 g (0.25 oz) weight, this tiny block is our lightest soft-attach and the perfect complement to Harken’s popular T2™ line. It installs anywhere and articulates for perfect lead angles. A stainless grooved race and stainless balls vastly increase working load, while the non-load-bearing components are made of lightweight and impact-resistant composites.

" We combined the best features of our tried-and-true 16 mm block, with the new T2 soft-attach block line and came up with the T18", says Product Manager Evan Thompson.

" The T18 is ideal for skiff, dinghy, and beach cat racers who are always looking for ways to shave off pounds."


The 18 mm block accommodates lines up to 5 mm (3/16") and includes 1 meter (3.28 ft) of 1.8 mm (1/16") Dyneema® for lashing. The T18 bearings and inner race are made with 316 stainless steel while the fiber-reinforced nylon resin sideplates reduce weight.

Viper Fleet Report of a succesful story.

The Viper Class is a story of complete success. Brought back to life from the brink of extinction now it has a life of its own. Last year we made the committment to support their efforts and got directly involved with the fleet in Texas, not only fully sponsoring some events, but helping newcomers with boat handling and rig tuning tips.

With the enthusiasm of all the owners the Texas fleet has gone from 6 boats in 2010 to 20+ boats in 2011 and the momentum keeps building.

Our own team campaigned a Viper 640 this season, and ended up winning the 2011 Texas / Gulf Coast Championship.

Next stop for our team: The Viper Miami Circuit in 2012.
