I actually just used an eye bolt and hung a block from it. Looking back I'm not sure the block is necessary at all. If I was going for a nicer finished look or something I would probably go with the dumb sheave installed into the top of the mast. It would just be a purely visual benefit but nothing from a functional standpoint that I can imagine.

The only addition I would make is that--in my limited use of them--cheek blocks need a line feeding through at a narrow angle, or else the line will bind and wear. The entry a halyard for a lug sail makes will be anything but narrow!
