Description

External Sail Slide 5/8" is a slide used in conjunction with sail track to secure mains or mizzens to their wooden spars and make hoisting and lowering sails easier. These stainless steel sail slides accommodate from 5/8" to 11/16" sail track.

Sail slides are typically secured ahead of the boltrope and inserted in the mast slot instead of the rope. Secure this stainless steel slide to a sail with webbing, webbing and grommet, shackle and grommet, or just a shackle. Sail slides also keep the sail stacked in the slot when a sail track stop is used. Slides are generally installed every 26 inches along the Luff edge and every 18 inches along the Foot edge of a sail.

Well-made and lightweight

Lightweight, high-quality slide for use with external sail track (Schaefer). I bought only a few to help align the sections of track for the storm trys’l. Nickel-plating helps alleviate metal-to-metal friction and galling.
