Sail track separation at the hounds


Recommended Posts

So went out last week in 12-15 knots of breeze and the first time I got spreader tension need the recommended 40kg.    Was planning to go out today in 15+ knots until I connected the shrouds to the hound.  Both sides pulled about a half inch under the track and into the fillet.

Found a Nick Burritoughs post from 7-22-2019 that suggested using Plexus MA300, 310 or 320.   Any recommendations on how to repair?

Looks like it's a little late. You need to talk to David or Kirk at Fulcrum.  The upgrade kit would recommend the plexus fillet just below that opening for a couple of inches.
