where to buy this jib car

Postby spokaneJoe » Tue Jun 06, 2023 3:34 pm

Hello,

I'm fiddling with a new to me sailboat. I have one of these jib car blocks but I'm missing the other one. I would love to just find one of these and not have to deal with a new rail and jib car set... and inspection port... All those tasks are going to be new adventures for my limited handy skills.

Anyone know where I can locate one of these?

If not, I'm likely going with the DR Marine jib car set.

Thank you!

Have you checked DR Marine?

PS: you may place a "want to buy" ad in the appropriate section (see bottom of main page) if you are interested in getting a used part.

I have checked DR Marine but no luck. Thanks for the tip on the buy/sell section!

Check out Racelite. They list slides for 3/4" track. You may have to find your own block, but the slides looked like they might work.

It looks like Racelite is the ticket!! I can't thank you enough! I was dreading having to learn how to put in new tracks! Many thanks!
