a snatch block that is connected to the aft end of a boom and that is used in a manner similar to a barber hauler to adjust a spinnaker’s sheeting angle farther outboard. The snatch block is a flying block placed on the spinnaker sheet between the clew and the aft sheet block. It is manually adjusted by means of a control line led through turning blocks or fairleads along the boom’s underside to its aft end.
