Code Zero snatch blocks

For the Code Zero we wanted to have removable blocks that were easy to handle and that were not permanently fitted on the boat. After reading several discussions in MyHanse-forum where and how to fit the removable blocks we came up with this solution. Having said that, we do not claim this is the best solution overall but it has worked for us so far.

 

1. We took some piece of thicker Dyneema that we had on the boat, bought couple of stainless steel thimbles and did the necessary splicing.

 

2. In the cleat end we made an interlocking splice which basically will lock the strands to each other and will be very strong and has no risk  of failing.

3. In the block end we fitted the thimbles and used a traditional whipped "tube" splicing as it was easier to get a tight fit on the thimble.

 

4. We added some rubber shockcord with hooks so the snatch blocks could be hung on the lifeline wires which will stop them banging on the deck when not in use.

5. Here you can see how the snatch block is fitted on the aft cleat. The rubber cord is not attached to the lifeline yet...

 

6. The sheet is attached to the front winch in the cockpit in order to get better angle and make it easier for the deckhand to handle.

7. Just another angle of view.
