Harken mainsheet traveler, 3:1 purchase with controls led forward for easy adjustment.
This traveler setup is what we recommend for racing your Ensign. Traveler controls are led forward under the deck, and come out on each side of the cockpit for easy adjustment by your crew.
To complete the traveler as pictured you will need the following Harken hardware:
- Traveler Track #2720.1.2
- Trim Caps #2722
- Traveler Car #2754
- 40mm Block x2 #2637
- End Controls #2740
- Through-Deck Exit Block x2 #089
- 29mm Cheek Block x2 #350
- 29mm Exit Block w/Cleat x2 #197
It is possible to set up the above racing traveler with a 4:1 purchase if desired. Simply substitute the 2637 blocks for 2642 40mm double blocks. If you remove the swivel, the 40mm double blocks fit perfectly in the 2754 traveler car. Then simply tie the bitter end of the traveler line to the built in becket on 2740 end control.
