Re: Advice wanted: Tides Marine Track and Slide system

We installed the strong track when we got our new, full-battened, loose-footed main. We are happy with both, and glad to have full-battens. New main giving us better performance, goes up pretty quickly with manual winch, drops down in the blink of an eye. We have lazy-jacks, which came with the boat, and this system works fine. Battens not getting caught up on lazy-jacks, because main is being hauled up so fast (by husband), and I (the wife) am so expert (!) in holding bow into the wind. (grin)
