We have a couple estimates for the repair. One reputable company in the area wants to repair just the area that separated and another wants to replace the entire length.

I don't trust the track and think removing the entire length would be the best solution.

Has this happened to anyone else and how was it repaired.

Same thing happened to a 110 we raced at key west.it was a well known production flaw. They replaced the track under warrantee. Meanwhile we had to lash the main to the mast and climb above the spreaders to tie and untie
