Consists of two 29mm Carbo Ti-Lite blocks spliced 8” apart with Amsteel 12. No shackles or rings needed. Just luggage tag them on to your jib.
Harken Carbo AirBlocks are lightweight, strong and reliable. Sideplates of high-strength engineering resin are UV stabilized to provide excellent protection against long-term exposure to salt water and sun. The low-profile Ti-Lite replaces headpost, shackle and spring with high-tech line.
Belowdeck Vang System
This split boom vang lets you easily adjust the vang from both sides while hiking. The 24:1 purchase uses lightweight Carbo blocks for the power needed to control sail shape without adding weight to the boat. The cascading system uses small high-tech line to help keep everything clean above deck.
Adjustable Ball Bearing Lead Car
Upgrading to an adjustable lead car system allows you to change your lead under sail without having to tack to unload the car. The new Micro CB traveler cars are very small and lightweight, but strong—perfect for the Lightning.
Ronstan makes these hooks out of grade 304 stainless steel with neoprene rubber gates. Both hooks include two stainless steel seld-tapping screws, but the RF91 model features a 1/4 inch bolt through attachment.
Made by Race Lite, the Lightning Stem Fitting is 6-1/2" long down the hull and 3" long on the deck portion. It works best with a 25mm Self Contained Sheave and a 3/16 x 1/2 clevis pin. Both are sold separately.
