Steps in Fabricating Bronze Blocks, Part 2, S2-E75

I cast and fabricated my own bronze blocks for my Haven 12 1/2. Follow along to learn more about the process and see the finished block. Boat builder Bob Emser also discusses the different types of blocks and where they are placed for rigging a sailboat. He also gives good advise on how you can purchase them for your boat.
