Sailormon6, I don't see any damaged hardware but sometimes the twisted halyard (twisted because I use the winch to pull up the sail) seems to add to the problem.

Sticky Mainsail

What products would you recommend to lubricate the mast track and the sliders to make hoisting and lowering the mainsail easier? (The mast is a Sparcraft Performance and the boat is 37').
