RE: Genoa car safe working load
You might look at Garhaurer for replacement. They produce a couple of towable cars for 1" and 1.25" track. I replaced our track and cars using the smaller of the two.

We are wanting to improve on our 1972 Lewmar genoa car with Tuffnol block which seizes under load of a full genoa. I like the look of the Rutgerson dual block cars, but which size. Rutgerson recommend for boats up to 36feet a car with a safe working load of 1000k. This seems modest to me. Our 120% genoa is set on the short 1972 mast. Rutgersons next size up is for a SWL of 1500k, would this help or is it going too high?
