Mystery Genoa Car

Can anyone identify the maker of this genoa car/block?

It's on my 1996 48ft Catana (french) catamaran. The sheave is worn and it would be great if I could get a replacement, but the only marks on it are "96G" stamped on the bottom of the car.

Thanks
-Jordan

Re: Mystery Genoa Car

Most likely for the cost of the part you would get a whole new car from Garhauer. Good stuff Garhauer.

Re: Mystery Genoa Car

If nobody answers you could try asking RigRite.

I'm in the UK and I'd still think of them first

Spent months trying to ID mine, turned out to be Goiot. Just a flying-seagully/albatrossy-looking logo on them.

Hmm. Garhauer eh? Must try to remember to reload the page before posting

Re: Mystery Genoa Car

Just found this on ebay, seller says it's a Lewmar No. 2.

Lewmar 29042600, Size 2 Genoa Car with Plunger SR | eBay

HehHehHeh Woot!



Still a dummy though, just a lucky one
@ $250 I'd definitely try rigrite.

Re: Mystery Genoa Car

You'll pay about 1/3 to 1/2 of the ebay price for Garhauer. No I don't work there.

Seriously, check out the wide sheaves I linked to on RigRite, bottom of my last post. Looks like they'll have what you need

Re: Mystery Genoa Car

Amazing. I'm in business for $32 shipped. Thanks again!!

This will be a big improvement (please excuse the dirty hands)


Edit: that's $32 for two sheaves... I needed both.

Re: Mystery Genoa Car

I am glad you found it, but for anything to do with sheaves I always recommend ZephyrWorks. They do custom sheaves for about $30.

Yeah I tried to edit my last one to say I got two sheaves for $32, but when I saved the whole thing was gone.

In any case, thanks again for the eBay detective work

Amazing, looks just like my Lewmar. . Even with similar kind chafe damage.. But how the hell do you get that off from the car bracket?? Mine has no screws bolts nuts whatever. Can use some sort of bearing puller or similar? I reckon hammer not such a good idea..

I didn't - Once I undid the two bolts holding the sheave in place I was able to pivot the cheeks around to get the sheave out. I don't think the the stainless U at the bottom comes off.

Good luck!
