Jib car assembly

Postby ciscovt » Wed Aug 10, 2016 12:57 pm

The cam cleats on my DS III jib tracks are shot or rather the springs in them are shot. The mounting centers on these are 1.75" which is more than the Rostan C series at 1.5" which means just trying to replace the cam cleats doesn't seem readily feasible. I have talked with Rudy at D&R and to install their replacement jib cars I would need to install an inspection port on both sides to access the bolts inside the hull holding the existing jib cars. I am sort of reluctant to do that without exploring any alternatives.
Has anyone created an alternative setup that works well or do I just have to bite the bullet and make this a project on the list.

Thank you,
