Schaefer Twin Sheet Genoa Lead Blocks
Twin Sheet Schaefer Lead Blocks feature an extra wide sheace
that allows two sheets to be run through the cage at the same time. This
is an important feature when you need to change sail, allowing you to
avoid sailing without a jub. The new sail can
be rigged and hoisted prior to lowering the original jib.
In addition to rigging flexibility and quick sail changes, another major
advantage to this Schaefer lead block is the low profile, wide lead lead
angle provided to the sailboat winch. Extra wide sheaves plus a 45° tilt
in either direction gives greater leeway in sheeting angles allowing
winches to be mounted
up to 15°to either side of the track.

provides a low winch lead while spreading sheet loads over several
track fasteners for maximun strength.

Schaefer Spring Loaded Genoa Lead Blocks
