What is the the best way to convert this from 8:1 to 16:1 based on your experiences? What hardware did you buy and is there a guide or forum post that tackles this already (I searched but couldn't come up with anything).

Thanks,

Dave

page 32 has the nacra race pack setup, 8:1 must be hard work!

Thanks, I have seen that doc but it wasn't very clear to me (low resolution images) I know its just adding another 2 blocks, but wasn't sure which hardware people were using and what they found worked best and where they fit in (or if the standard nacra race kit is best for that)? Anyone have clearer picture of this or upgraded from 8:1 to 16:1?

Thanks, finally clear now what they are doing with the 2:1 terminating in the cleat on the mast! I also found this other thread using google rather than the forums built in search in case others are searching for the same:

http://www.catsailor.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=19076

I wonder if anyone has a specific block they have had success with or estimated max loading required for the top block for the 2:1 in that configuration?
