Blocks or pulleys for a sailboat can have single or multiple sheaves such as single blocks, double blocks, triple blocks and quadruple blocks. Blocks when fixed to the end of a line are used to gain mechanical advantage. The larger use of sheaves in a configuration, the higher mechanical advantage gained. Blocks are used from small dinghies, to keelboats, sport boats, big boats and Maxis. The three most common alternatives for modern blocks are: plain bearings, ball bearings and roller bearings. MAURIPRO Sailing has the largest selection of blocks including fiddle blocks, ratchet blocks, snatch blocks, wire blocks, mainsheet systems, footblocks, cheek blocks, fairlead blocks, stand-up blocks, halyard lead blocks and more.
