Foot Blocks 

 

Foot Blocks are placed on the deck to redirect lines toward the cockpit without sacrificing the ability to pull the line in and are designed for high stress applications such as trimming the spinnaker. Technical assistance is available to assist when making the right decision on foot blocks for you boat, whatever the condition you sail in.
