The sheeves in our gennoa car are shot. What is the width of the gennoa track? I think that is all I need to know to order new ones.

I guess I still need help. The parts dept. at Catalina said 1" but they sure looked larger than that to me. Unfortunately I am in Nebraska and the boat is in the Florida panhandle. Anyone else measure them lately?

I'd take Stu's word for it. MaYbe someone is reading the actual track width, while others are reading the base width? Hurry back from Florida- before the next hurricane :)

Thanks a lot! It's hard to maintain a boat from across the country. We are joining the Bluewater Bay Sailing Club out of Niceville FL on a week cruise in October if there are no hurricaines then!

Those LLC-2 LL cars are nice. I just put them on my C30. Garhauer makes them for 1" track if asked. CD has them for the same price.
