As per the picture, the fitting on the main sail mast
accepts the sliders. Problem is when dropping the mainsail
this fitting has to be covered or the sliders pop out (as obvious) without some kind of cover. The sliders settle in about 2 feet below this fitting when the mainsail
is dropped. The pic shows tap and drill holes where I placed some strips of aluminum
to keep the sliders in, however, the sliders catch frequently on these (gap narrowing covers) under certain wind
conditions or no wind
even resulting in a very "not smooth" raising/lowering of the mainsail. If you have a similar set up and found a way to cover this slider fitting effectively, I would appreciate your solution. Thanks in advance....
