Product Features:

This series 42 batten car is fitted with a quick release barrel joint and receptacle pin machined from 17/4 ph stainless steel. The barrel fitting is also a larger diameter for extra strength and is machined to allow a more accute angle to the mast of 42.85 degree,this makes the car suitable for the "fat top" style of mainsail used on this extreme offshore racing trimaran. The car body is also machined away between the towers exposing the batten track in the center of the car in order to remove any superfluous material. The receptacle pin is machined with an M16 thread with a cone shaped shoulder to fit into the boats custom made batten boxes.
