Genoa Foot Blocks
« on: July 27, 2004, 04:48:13 PM »

Sun, age and use have deteriorated both of the Genoa foot blocks shattering them (on the same day) and rendered them useless. They were the old vinyl plastic design. I have purchased new guts from Garhauer and am ready to install them. I managed to get at the nuts at the back end of the port block by removing the engine control panel. The starboard side is a different story however. I see no access directly on the side or below in the aft cabin. There is a beckson port below, however I cannot decide if it is there for winch access or the foot block. Regardless it is not in a beneficial position and when I removed the cover I found that there was a good layer of foam sprayed inside.
 I did a search and found nothing that answered my questions. Has any done this and how did you gain access?  Any help please??
