Upgrade your Laser / ILCA outhaul setup with our custom pro outhaul. Designed around an 'aft end' purchase system (using the boom cleat), this system creates a class legal 6:1 purchase with a block attached at the cleat. A clean, easy to install method, this outhaul has no knots to tie. Includes soft shackle, Harken 16mm single block, and a Harken 16mm single block with becket with primary control line (4mm Dinghy Control) and secondary line (4mm Amsteel) professionally spliced and whipped by our Rigging Department. Simply attach the single block to the cleat with the soft shackle and run the primary line through the block, back and through the single with becket, and then forward to the mast. Combine with our Outhaul Mast Loop with Block (Single) for a complete setup.
- Blocks: Harken 16mm Airblocks
- Primary Control Line: 4mm Dinghy Control
- Secondary Line: 3mm Amsteel
'Forward' vs 'Aft' Outhaul Purchase Systems - There are two common styles of Laser / ILCA outhaul rigging. The first is to position the purchase system 'forward' using two blocks hung around the mast at the gooseneck and a block with becket connecting your control line (goes down to deck) to your primary line (goes aft to end of boom). This was the method used in all of the original Harken Outhaul/Cunningham upgrade kits, which included Harken 22mm Micro Blocks. The second method for outhaul rigging is to use an 'aft' purchase system, which utilizes the cleat on the boom as an anchor point for a turning block. In this setup, one block is hung around the mast at the gooseneck and the cascading purchase system is position aft of the cleat. Both methods work great, though most sailors currently prefer the 'aft' style of outhaul rigging. The product on this page is for the 'Aft' style.
