Halyard block project

Above and below are pictures of one of our many cold-season projects. With the troubles we had with our floorboard supports failing on USA 125, we needed something better than the temporary floor supports to attach the main halyard block and cleat. We'd temporarily cleated the main halyard (the line the raises the mainsail) to a cleat on the cuddy ledge, but that was a horrible position. So, we hand-cut a wooden block to attach to an I-beam on centerline that would hold the block and cleat. The result was a much better cleating position.
