Soft Board Control

I have usually always used blocks bolted to boards to allow the hold-down lines or the lift lines to function. In the same way that spectra wraps now can replace a track and car on the boom, I propose similar for a board. On a smaller board you can use a Harken C 8882. On a slightly bigger board you could use that part cut down the center and attached to both sides of the board. On big boards, I’m experimenting with a faired hole using high strength bog. I will see if teflon coating or graphite coating helps. I assume it will not work quite a well as a block, but be much cleaner.
