Product Features:

This series 26 car is fitted with sliderods in order to carry high static loads seen at the reef points,the reduced effeciency of the sliderods not being too detrimental to the system because such a car would only be used in the lower part of the rig where the travel of the car would be small.The car can also be used as a cunningham car.The top shackle is attached to the reef line or cunningham strop and the bottom shackle used to attach a control line. Typically this car would be used for a reef car on race yachts up to approximately 18m length overall,or could be used as cunningham car on slightly larger yachts with "soft" mainsails in which case only a short length of track would be fitted in the tack region of the mast
