Mainsail slide systems

Simple candle wax rubbed into the track and onto the sail slides will allow the mainsail go up and down with minimal friction. Then carve a piece of the paraffin to loosely fit inside the track, put it between the uppermost sail and next uppermost slides and the wax ''carving'' will keep on applying wax as you raise and lower the sail. Works on the Harken cars too.
