Riser block

(1/2) > >>

Does anyone make the carbon riser blocks that I have seen on a few boats?

Geoff Sobering:
All the ones I know of were built by the sailor.
Maybe Jeff Kent?

Mine is a chunk of dead carbon fibre hockey stick.  If you don't have young hockey players of your own, troll the neighbourhood early on a winter garbage day.

DN 5449:
What is the main purpose of having a deck riser?

KB [us5219]:
Saw one break off the deck of a certain silver fleet racers boat.  It cost  him a possible win in one race. 
The rationale, is that more deck clearance makes it easier to get around under the boom, steer, tack, Jibe, etc...
