  Pulleys (blocks on boats)
  Posted by: grayhawk on Jun-21-13 3:26 PM (EST)
 

With a single pulley system it doubles your purchase or half the weight. The more pulleys you use the more purchase you have but also more line to pull.

On sailboats you may have 3 or 4 pulleys (blocks) at each end of the mainsheet.
