Blocks for Swan 37
Hello Guys,
We are finally sailing!!!! Today was the first sail and everything went very well. We had a good 15knots and the boat performed very well. I will post some photos when I have time.
Now I think to replace the blocks on the boat I will buy new:
Mainsheet blocks, we have the original 4:1 now and I think to keep the same configuration
Spinnaker halyard blocks
Spinnaker sheet turning blocks that attach to the toe rail near the transom. I guess that the spinnaker pole guy goes through this one too?
Does the professor or anyone else have an idea of the working loads we might want to plan for so I can buy the right gear?

Dear Fletch
Block manufacturers have charts on their webpages with block recommendations, and it is suggested that you look there. I can assist in case of doubt.
The spinnaker pole guy (aft guy) blocks should be located midships
Kind regards
