C-27 Mid Boom Traveler Upgrade

Part #: Z1731
This traveler replaces your original, arched mid boom traveler or your aft traveler if you are converting from end boom sheeting to mid boom sheeting. As you have probably noticed, the arch on the original traveler causes it to be difficult to adjust. The distance between the boom and the traveler increases as the car is eased away from the centerline of the boat. As a result, when the mainsheet is strapped in going to weather, the traveler will not move to leeward when the traveler control is released. This flat track eliminates the problem.
In addition, recirculating 240 ball bearings support the load on the traveler car without binding. Control lines and cleats provide mechanical advantage to bring the car to weather. Even under high mainsheet loads, one can trim the traveler car with ease. Backing plates shown are included.

Kit includes track, car, stainless steel risers, control blocks with a 5:1 purchase and cleats.

1) The handrail position varies from one Catalina 27 to the next. Tell us the position of you handrails by measuring from the inboard side of one, across the cabin top to the inboard side of the other. We will custom make the length to fit your boat.
Please note the measurement in the comments field at the bottom of the customer information entry form during checkout.

2) Mounting screws for the risers should be 1/4" flathead fasteners. We are unable to provide them or the fasteners for the halyard lift turning blocks as the thickness of the fiberglass can vary substantially from one boat to another.

3) If your boat is equipped with a dodger, you should order the traveler control dodger retrofit kit listed below.

4) The traveler assembly is an oversize item which does not conform to our standard shipping policies. Call 800-959-7245 (800-959-SAIL) for a shipping estimate.

5) This is a custom made part. You provide the information we need to build this product for you. Once you order it we are going to build it just for you, just as you asked. We never want to see it again, and no one else wants it either. So be careful and order it correctly the first time because it can't be canceled, returned, or magically changed into something different!
