Re: Tides Marine mast track

We have Tides track I installed myself. It was not too hard.

Yes your price seems way out of wack. What size boat are we talking here?

The sail track has a life expectancy based upon UV exposure. It seems that it’s about 8 years minimum for tropical sun conditions. When you replace it they seem youbthe track alone at a reduced price.

Your P dimension is 23’ and tides is quoting $29.10/foot on their website, you may do better through a rigger. Anyway that looks like under $600. Maybe they thought you meant METERS?

I would also consider the weight you are adding to the mast. I would check that it is appropriate for such a small boat.

33' Brewer, Murray 33, steel cutter
44' Pape, Steelmaid, cc steel cutter
