It was a typo on my part. MT-2CT-TP is still avail on Garhauer's website, although it's now $700....And correct, I used Garhuaer's 40-series blocks to replace the old blocks on the boom (Gar #40-13, three of these ), the original fiddle block that attaches to the traveler car (Gar #40-01) plus the stand-up swivel block mounted at the base of the mast (Gar #40-19). I can't recall how many screws I have total holding down the new track. Since I lost my old traveler in shipment I had to lay down a long piece of tape over the existing holes on the boat and mark where the old holes were. I then mounted that piece of tape to a piece of cardboard and sent that to Garhauer. Actually I was deployed to the desert when this happened so the wife had to do it!Was that maybe a typo or have they maybe modified it slightly and thus changed the model number?
And no need to use a winch to move the traveler car. Not sure of the line size, maybe 1/4" or 5/16"...Garhauer recommended the line size so I may have to search old correspondence to see if I wrote it down. If you don't find a good answer I'll measure it next time I'm at the boat....
