Genoa lead car for Toe Rail
I have a 1983 Top Hat 25 which has cast aluminum genoa lead cars on the toe rail. I should say had; for some reason only one remains and I am keen to get hold of at least one replacement. Unfortunately I cannot find one anywhere.
Everyone tells me that it is time to fit a track, but it just wont be the same, and the boat points pretty well as it is. The best thing about the cars is that the sheets are not interfered with by the shrouds or the lifelines and as the boat has a narrow beam it still sails upwind fairly well.
Does anyone know where I can find one or a modern equivalent? please see attached photos.
