Can anyone tell me how far the spinnaker sheet block is located from the rear cabin wall?

Not sure if mine is right, but I put it at 26” from the cabin wall. I just looked at a bunch of pictures and came up with that. John Harris talked about putting it on a track to be able to adjust. With this in mind, I installed about 20” of blocking. This gives me about 10 inches either way to move it. I did note all these dimensions on a piece of paper and saved for reference later.

Thanks Ron. That helps a lot. I am waiting for the sailing hardware pack to arrive, but I doubt very much that it will include tracking for the blocks. I came to a similar conclusion to you about location. I've got time to decide, but wanted to know where to put the wood blocking in the seatback tops to install the fittings.

If I had spelled spinnaker correctly I may have saved myself a posting when searching the forum.
Thanks Ron and Steve for your info and the spelling lesson.
