Excellent article, one of things that stands out on this site , besides the skilled builds and friendly members is the great accesses to reference material. Many articles you find are good articles but no “how does it look “pictures. Like many builders I use allot of trial and error to get a certain procedure right. Having a picture of the process gives me that visual to compare with, maybe its just me but it helps. Onther thing on rigging blocks is knowing how read the plans, understanding the terms. For example an early mistake I made was rigging blocks without understanding what a purchase was. As many of us have found out the hard way a purchase is there for a reason, and the block has to be removed and rigged again, which is not always easy. This simple tool is invaluable to me when rigging blocks.

How do you "book mark" something

G'day J
I'm using Chrome as my browser.
1: On the top right there are 3 Virtual dots.
2: Click that and a pull down menu appears.
3: Then click the star outline on top of the menu. And the bookmarks is saved.
To look at your bookmarks
Do the first 2 steps as above.
3: go down to bookmarks and there you will see all the bookmarks that you have done.
I would assume that other browsers would be similar.

Hope that answers you question.
