Question Jib car position tape

Does anyone know where I can buy some self adhesive graduated tape which I can stick to the deck adjacent to jib car tracks to help position jib cars? Thanks for your help.

You mean like this?
Sailboat control labels
Google is your friend!

The stickers work better if you stick them directly on the track, rather than on the deck.

If you have a North Sails loft I know they used to produce something similar, and you could also try your local rigger or chandlery.

See WEST MARINE Sailboat Control Labels at West Marine

"It is not so much for its beauty that the sea makes a claim upon men's hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air, that emanation from the waves, that so wonderfully renews a weary spirit."
