Main Traveler track replacement
The track for the main sheet traveler gave on the edges allowing the car to slip off. The track profiles from Lewmar and Harken will not fit my existing car.
The top flage width is 25mm, and while sort of T-shape, the arms are short, the stem is thick, and the bottom edges of the arms are chamfered at 45d for the trolley rollers to run on. Has anyone fabricated replacement track out of plastic, wood or metal? I was contemplating solid ash possibly with an 1/8-in stainless plate on top.
