offshore spars & brass slides
new boat, brass slides and alum track, slides are jamming at gate when attempting to raise; despite lubricant....any thoughts ( second boat with this arrangement- first boat I had to change the slugs..gets costly & why do I have to?)

Does your mast have a long crane extension.
It sounds like the halyard pull is not properly aligned with the track.

I'm not sure Dog would agree with the alignment issue. You should probably ask him though. He's very helpful.
