mast main sail track misaligned
I just bought an 1967 Cheoy Lee Offshore 40 and I've got a problem with the original mast track for the main sail being cut in two places about 5' up so it could open up for furling the main sail around the boom in bad weather, I think. Anyway, my problem is that the main sail cars get stuck on those two joints while raising and lowering the main sail. I was thinking about trying to align the track at those juctions with JB weld to make a better connection, but thought I better ask this forum first to see if there isn't a better way to solve this problem without replacing the entire track on the mast.
as usual, any help greatly appreciated.
