Traveller upgrade

image

This is is what our new double car main sheet traveller will look like, after our old single car failed, spilling ball bearings all over the cockpit!

Update: went a different route , rather than coupling a second traveller car as in the photo, I bought a much larger and stronger traveller car, the Ronstan RC12613, which fitted fine onto the Harken track. I did also buy the rebuild kit HMR99 from Harken for the old traveller, seems it was enough of a known problem for them to create a fixit kit. I will keep that as a spare. The new car is pictured below to the left and can be seen to be much more substantial than the old one to the right.
