Ronstan Ballslide Batten Car System, Episode 25

Episode 25 still

Sailing upwind reefed with new Ronstan Mast Car system

This weeks show is about the Ronstan Ballslide system on my mainsail.  On my Express 27 I used a boltrope on the main, yikes that was a pain reefing, and dropping the main on a windy day by myself, no fun.

The Ronstan system is fantastic.  It fits the mast groove on the back of most aluminum mast, with the inserts that fits on the car to match the mast grove.

Then a mast gate needs to be built that will allow the cars to slide by easily, and be strong enough to withstand the abuse a mast car will give it, with all the reefing I do.

Enjoy the video and if you are looking for a better system on your aluminum mast, I highly recommend this option.

Get out sailing and enjoy the summer.   See the video here and sign up for In and Out of The Boat Shop, Vimeo channel to receive updates when new videos are posted.
