Catalina Mainsail Traveler

Does anyone know the manufacture of a 1995 Catalina 400 mainsail traveler and a good replacement for the traveler car?
I do not want to replace the who thing and I am trying to find a traveler car that is close to the rig I have now. Most of the traveler cars I have seen, the sheaves are on the top and mine are on the front side.

Thanks

Re: Catalina Mainsail Traveler

Garhauer probably made it, depending on what year the boat is.

Call Catalina parts - the number is on their web site - they will tell you.

I don't know about parts, but "Catalina Mainsail Traveler" sounds like a good name for a blues band.

Re: Catalina Mainsail Traveler

I found the information that I needed. It is a Garhauer Traveler which is no longer made.

The way the traveler sheets are held into the traveler car is a poor design. A steel sleeve was crimped over the ends of the line, slipped into a whole and held in place with a set screw. The traveler car is made of aluminum. Over time the steel sleeve fuses to aluminum car and can not be removed. I need to replace the sheets, which I am sure date back to 1995. I called Garhauer and was told the only fix, until I can afford another traveler, is to tie the new sheets to the U bolt, (where the main sheet snaps on to the traveler), and make it work that way. Not the prettiest rig in the world, but it does work.

Re: Catalina Mainsail Traveler

Yes, it is Garhauser. DId you check with Catalina to see if they had a spare? I was there the other day and they are filled with extra parts (often cheaper than anywhere else).
