They're either sail slugs or sail slides depending on the design of the mast track. If it is an internal slot, then they're sail slugs and are either flat or round pieces about an inch or so long. If they go onto an external track on the mast, they're usually called sail slides or cars, and are a bit more expensive.

Defender.com is an excellent place to shop on the web. Give them a call if you have specific questions.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
