Pinstop Jib Leads

Harken Curved Track

Harken Curved Track

Track is often bent to follow the cabin house curve or boom radius. Sometimes track is bent vertically, ends up, to relieve tension on the sail's leech as the traveler car moves off the boat's centerline.

To perform smoothly and carry the correct load, the traveler car's length must suit track radius. Check the description of the traveler cars for their minimum radius requirements. Remember that you can couple two cars for higher loads on tighter radii.

Minor bends can often be made when the track is installed. If the track requires more bend, we can provide track with horizontal, vertical or compound curves to your specifications for a modest charge. If the bend is continuous, add 2 to 4 inches (50 to 100 cm) to each end because track cannot be bent to its ends. Standard Harken Mini-Maxi and Maxi traveler cars cannot ride on vertical bends with a radius under 50' (15.25m).
