hi , alan , the actual car s are breaking , 3 so far ! they are a rutgerson ,early type, and not very strong . i do crank the main up high though . i need the clearance above the boom for headroom
, but its still not to the top of the mast
, but you might have a point there . i am adding 500mm section to the top of the mast this winter so any over -hoisting wont be happening then . Mick , i have a bronze sailslide on the lower headboard hole ,this never breaks , but the car fitted to the top headboard hole is always the one that breaks , so maybe i should give up the top car and just fit another bronze slide /lanyard ? is this what you have ?
