need the main traveler car for a venezia.

Any suggestions on where to buy the traveler car for the mainsheet. Mine has a crack in it and it's about ready to go anytime.

What brand name? Or do you need the track too?

Re: need the main traveler car for a venezia.

I didn't see any brand name on the car. The track is fine though. I was hoping that someone new what brand it was? I'm also looking for a trampoline that can be put together in three weeks. Any suggestions on that?

Re: need the main traveler car for a venezia.

I'd find some shop that can heliarc the car rather than wait for it to break. Try also to add a patch over the weak area. This might hold while you wait for parts & also as a spare. Take photos and measurements and send to Maori & others. You might find a cross-reference that could work on your track too. If you have space on the track you might look for a double car and spreader beam to divide the load.

Re: need the main traveler car for a venezia.

Try www.rigrite.com
I have Amiot car on my Venezia:
Traveller Car w/ Triple Toggles: AMI 32B-13D:
Traveller Car for Amiot 32mm RCB Track has Delrin Ball Bearings and Three pivoting Toggles for attachment to mainsheet blocks. Car has beckets and 2 control sheaves for up to 5/16" (8mm) line, providing up to a 3-1 control purchase. Triple Toggle Car is 12" (300mm) long with a maximum width of 3 1/16" (78mm).

btw: you can get the hd delrin balls way cheaper at McMaster-Carr... been there, done that.
