I called Jeremy Rogers Chandlery and they sell a custom wear strip so I have purchased one for £35 inlc carriage and VAT.  I will let you all know how I get on with it!

best wishes

I fitted a shorter version of this...

a couple of years ago with a couple of self-tapping screws, works a treat.

As you say it's only needed on one side.

Hello David
You could do what I did if you have the means. That is to purchase a 1m length of 3/4" bore, 316, thick wall, water pipe. Cut it into 3 and slit one length into quarters. One of these makes a wear strip which is secured with c/sunk self tappers. The pipe is quite soft to bend and you will have enough  for 12 boats.

p.s. it looks quite smart too

Hi Colin.  That was in response to Paul's suggestion to lead the sheet back to a turning block (like the spinnaker's) and then back up to the winch.  I prefer your idea to fit a stainless wear strip so I will try that first.

Again, thanks for you help

Not sure why you would need to reinforce a stanchion base as Genoa sheets are never run through blocks on the stanchions - spinnaker guys yes! 
Are your Genoa sheet blocks worn? Barton do suitable replacements that fit the existing tracks & are kinder on the sheets - the original Tufnol blocks often get 'sharp' nicks in them!

Yes, you'd need to fit a proper footblock on a suitably angled plinth.

Thanks

I was worried that the stanchion base might need reinforcing?
