Amiot Traveler Track Control Ends

Has anyone replaced their Amiot track control ends yet? What did you replace it with? Any other issues related to this change?

We had both break in a recent squall (starboard broke and the car slammed into the port end breaking it, but luckily didn't let the car go free of the track).

What I have found so far is that Amiot is not in business anymore. Rig-Rite in US has replacement ends with becket for the 32mm track (AMI-32T-02 for about $140 each) that is slightly difference than ours but looks like it will work. Lewmar has control ends with becket that fit a 32mm track, but I'm unsure from pix how they fit on the end of the track or how to secure them.

Our starboard control end broke partially because the threaded hole in the AL track eroded from the SS screw that held the control end in place, and the control end tipped up. I will need to repair the hole or convert to a through deck hole (not happy).

Back when we still had Belize cats in the charter fleet we used lewmar traveller ends on a few of them we had to place them at the end of the track and through bolt them into the deck with backing plates.

Thanks CaptJay. Most likely what I will do since I can more easily get Lewmar products in Carib.

Re: Amiot Traveler Track Control Ends

for your information ... these look a hell-of-a-lot like the Goiot brand traveller ends, which are on my yacht. So you might try looking for Goiot brand items as well ... you might get a perfect match

Garhaurer has traveler control ends that will fit Amiot Track that are better than the originals and less costly.

FWIW...

Re: Amiot Traveler Track Control Ends

Hi I need to replace corroded traveller control ends on my Amiot mainsheet system. Does anyone have personal knowledge of which brands of end control will fit the amiot track.

Thanks
