High load cruiser block of rugged construction, featuring high quality injection moulded side plates with all load-carrying components from 316 grade stainless steel. Side plates are through-bolted and riveted for added strength and security.
This good looking and versatile block is designed for ease of use on larger cruising and racing yachts. Also, ideal for use with Barton's ball bearing mainsheet traveller systems.
Barton plain bearing blocks have a precision moulded acetal sheave running on a large diameter brass bearing, ensuring free running under the highest of loads, with a triple removable shackle that can be set in-line or at 90° to the sheave.
