2565RE: [campernicholson] Genoa Track Blister repair
- Mar 1, 2004
It’s not a simple project, presuming the 35 is anything like my 26. The cabinet work under the deck isn’t half of the problem. The set-screws through the genoa track freeze and are very difficult of access. I had it done by a shipwright to a fixed price he’d set and he told me afterwards he wished he hadn’t quoted the fixed price! He ended up drilling out each and every set screw in the track. Good luck!

Dale and Paula,
We are about to start this same project. Taking the tracks off is pretty straightforward involving the removal of the the backing plates which means quite a bit of the cabinetry in the galley and nav station areas has to be dismantled first.
Are you going to refit the original tracks or replace it with a new one? I want to replace the old genoa cars but haven't decided yet whether to replace the tracks. The old ones are a bit nicked up but probably still serviceable.
