Rutgerson’s popular plain bearing block has been re-launched under a new name: The RAW Block, an extremely reliable block with the best price on the market considering its strength. This block is produced from a high-tech composite of such strength that no stainless-steel reinforcement is needed. Consequently, overall weight of the block is reduced. The block is completely maintenance free, as the spherical plain bearings will never deform under static high loads like ball bearings do. Furthermore, the RAW Block is available in many different sizes and comes with a range of different fastening alternatives which makes it extremely versatile on the boat.
