Hi all, I'm looking to add 2' of spinnaker car track on my mast to the lower end.

Anyone have spare track, or experience installing more track effectively?

1.25" wide black aluminum T-track

I'm assuming that Rig-Rite will be too difficult to contact, but open to buying new if that is easier.

Thanks,
Blaine

(We added a lower mounting point for our pole for reaching, but the permanent ring and the genoa sheets don't get along)

Thanks pez and Navy Dan!

Navy Dan, I'm hull 410, so we're sister ships. Also the Schaefer track at riggging and hardware isn't an exact match to our Merriman T-Track, which only matters because I'm going to butt the new track up against the existing track to that the spinnaker car can slide from one track to the next.

Does anyone know if the wall thickness at the most forward part of the mast is thicker than the .13" that Rig Rite has documented?

If you do, that would be a help. I spoke with RigRite a week ago, and they wrote down all my requests, but they have yet to get me a quote, or answer the phone again in recent days.
