I just bought a used Hobie Cat 14.

I need help threading the blocks

The top block is a double and is where the rope ends in a knot. The bottom block is a triple with a ratchet in the center.

There is no clew on the bottom block.

I've watched countless of videos but none where the blocks are different sizes.

Can someone help me?

You have basically the same as a 6:1, but the line stops at the top block instead of returning to the lower. So steps 1 through 6. At 6, tie to the becket on the upper block.

Thank you so much!

Do I need a clew or is the center ratchet sufficent?

Not clew. Cleat. Do I need one if the bottom block’s center is a ratchet?

You don't "need" a cleat, but they make the sailing much easier on your hands / arms. Holding the sail load all the time is fatiguing.
