Hi, I just bought a Catalina 30 TRFK and would like to rig for a Asymmetrical. Can I mount a tack block on bowsprit? I am concerned about side loads. If anyone has done this could you send pics. I have searched for days with no luck.

Phil, Are you talking about the bow rail or bow pulpit verses an actual bow sprit? On a bow pulpit/rail I wouldn't do it. You might get away with that on a much smaller boat. If it is a bowsprit it should have at least a padeye or similar item that allows a block to be mounted.
