FF – Rear Spinnaker Snatch Blocks….

On the new Ovington Mk X, the spinnaker sheets emerge from a tube running through the stern tank. So if the helm grabs them in the rear cockpit during a gybe, they rub direct on the gelcoat – not good.

I first saw this solution on a P&B boat and have fitted them to my Mk X – it works a treat. In this photo you will also see stern toestrap adjusters on a P&B boat. They are the little silver cleats on the rear bulkhead…

Contrast this with another feature on the blog about the Ovington Mk X at the dinghy show. I feel you’ll see a slightly better arrangement in that blog post….
