Re: Advice wanted: Tides Marine Track and Slide system

I have 45' luff and full length battens. The attachment is with metal bail slugs and it hoists, reefs, and drops like a rock. While larger sails are a different matter, slides are a waste on such a small sail, just something to fail. The boat and sail are 1997.

(when asked how he reached the starting holds on a difficult rock climbing problem that clearly favored taller climbers - he was perhaps 5'5")

"Well, I just climb up to them."
