Iím looking for hardware for a 11/4 ď T- track mainsheet. What company carries them and are they any good? Most are 11/2 ď or 1 1/8. Thanks, I donít want to change the traveler track if I can avoid it.

Take a look at Schafer's travelers. I did a lot of research before I installed the new traveler on my own 36' Morgan, and they had the strongest systems at the best prices, plus their traveler cars don't fall into a million little bearings when you take them off, unlike Harkens' units.

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.

Hey thanks! Sander I saw exactly what I need on the site you put up. It saves me the trouble of changing the track. Thanks everyone.

Harken now has a captive ball system that prevents the bearings from falling out, but you'd have to upgrade the track.
