Inboard Genoa Track Kit 1" x 4' 1986 -> C-22

Part #: D1964
$205.60
48" is the nominal length of the track. When trimmed to accommodate mounting holes track length ends up 47".

Includes all of the hardware you will need to install two 4' long inboard genoa tracks. The 1" track was standard on boats built after 1985, but this kit is often used on earlier boats by owners who desire standard 1" track. Inboard tracks make the boat point higher by providing a lead for your heads'l that is closer to the centerline of the boat.
Some racers will create a bend in this track while bolting it to the deck. At the aft end of the track it is mounted close to the cabin trunk. The forward half of the track is mounted farther outboard. After rounding the weather mark the car is slid forward for a proper lead angle. As the car is moved forward it also moves outboard, freeing the leech of the genoa. This opens the slot between the main and genoa for better performance off the wind without resorting to the use of barber_hauler to pull the sheets. outboard. You get the best of both inboard and outboard tracks through a very simple and elegant solution.

For the fasteners that will be exposed inside the main cabin, we provide barrel nuts. A traditional installation uses a hex nut plus an acorn nut creating a substantial and dangerous protrusion below. Barrel nuts minimize the danger because the threads are inside the thickness of the deck with only a minimal protrusion below the the inside surface of the overhead. A few extra fasteners included in the kit allow you to mount the track forward or aft a bit to accommodate the clew height of your sails.

1) If this kit is used on boats built after 1985, you must create a small plastic shim if you want to span the short step in the deck toward the front of the track.

3) To obtain the closest match possible, the T track included with our kit is the oem track used by Catalina Yachts. Unfortunately, Catalina didn't provide end stops, therefore there are no OEM end stops that exactly match the OEM track. Although there are various track manufacturers, there is only one source for the molded plastic end stop. Various tracks, even of the same size, are produced with risers of differing dimensions. This does not affect the functionality of any of the tracks, but it does mean that you will need to modify slightly (or simply trim off entirely) the little plastic tabs on the end stops that slip under the end of the track.

4) We include two end stops so that one end of the track is left open t
o facilitate removal of the cars for storage. If you want end stops on both ends of the track, order two more of our #Z3796 End Stops under May we also suggest" below.
