Re: Mirage 24 main sheet traveler
If I remember correctly there's a bit of a bridgedeck where the traveler is mounted. It should be a straightforward replacement.. the bolt spacing ought to be the same, the new track and car will work together and there should be clearance (vertically) for the car, but I suppose it's possible you'll need a spacer (Starboard, perhaps?) If the traveler is near the aft edge of the bridge deck then the added depth fore/aft of the windward sheeting car shouldn't be an issue. Do you have decent access to the underdeck for the fasteners?
