    29er Sail Track

    I finally got hold af everything, and got to work. Used masking tape along the outline of the sail track and inserted stir sticks into the luff groove to even out the pressure from the clamping tape. I used MA300 and because of the low temperatures around here, it didn't set too soon. There was a bit of cleaning up. I actually reused the old track... again, thank you for your help and guidelines. The mast is now back in use...

    29er Sail Track

    Thank you, great help from @JulianB and @allweather. The Danish 9er dealer lists Plexux MA300 as their product of choice. Other than short set time, are there any other issues, that I should focus on?

    29er Sail Track

    Thanks a lot, Allweather. I think that's what I need. Is the 3m 5200 a reliable alternative, being a one component adhesive?

    29er Sail Track

    So, my daughter recently broke the middle part of the mast on her 29er. In the process, the sail track, which is glued on to the top part of the mast, was torn off. I would like to fix this, but what kind of glue should I use, and what is the "correct" method for lining up mast and track, and applying pressure for the glueing?

    Hey, Bob Perry, what do you think of this?

    The red boat in the top pic is a "Marsvin" (Porpoise). Same designer, but only 22 ft. There were also a "Spaekhugger" (Killer whale) 25 ft model, as well as a "Kaskelot" (Sperm whale) 32 footer. "Grinde", the model i question means Pilot whale. The designer is Peter Bruun.

    What is this?

    Here´s a bit of background. Not all of af Utzon´s (of The Sydney Opera House fame) work was brilliant, it seems http://www.utzonphotos.com/guide-to-utzon/projects/tritail-sailboat/
