Postby havenfwind26M » Wed May 17, 2017 8:20 pm

:macm: I am missing a port side genoa track car and had a local marine parts supplier try to source. Anyone know the brand and where l may get one? Does West Marine have them?

Thanks Highlander. Turns out that the piece I was missing was actually a bimini mount car with a stop. Went to Dowsar Marine and was able to buy a single to match my other. So now I'm a bit confused where I run the genoa sheets through. Is it okay to move the jib cars to these rails and run the sheets back to the winches? :macm:
