Luff track info
I bought a sad old 15' sailboat for cheap recently. One of the most apparent problems with is is the luff track screwed onto a square fiberglass mast. The track is in several segments, and the joints between them are not properly aligned. To add to this, the metal is bent in places. I have to make sure each individual car makes it past the joint. This is very time consuming. I am looking to improve or replace this track.
Can you people who are familiar with sailing hardware tell me what kind of track it is? What is it called? Where can I get spare pieces in case something breaks?
I have attached a picture of a piece of the track in question and one of it's sail cars.
