Before you replace your traveler in the existing spot, you  might want to
think about a traveler bridge over the companionway as was done on  the
later boats. this moves the traveler away from the companionway , so there
is no interference with the cabin access. Your traveler may be repairable.
E  mail me at pgardnersj@xxxxxxx, and tell  me what is wrong. I may be able
to fix it.

Subject: Traveler repair

My original traveler has met its  end. The sheaves are busted and the cam
cleats now flop around. I have no idea  what kind it is since there are no
markings and it rides on wheels on each  side of the track and I have not
found anything like it since everything today  is on bearings on a slightly
different style  track.

SO, I am about to replace the  entire traveler system…ouch this is
expensive…with Harkensmall boat equipment.

When I put this new traveler track  down, I am debating exactly what
bedding/sealant to use….should I make it like  it’s permanent with 3M 5200
or Sikaflex292 or  something a bit more forgiving…….I’m thinking permanent
cause after I’ve  pulled the galley to get to these bolts, I’m not going to
be thinking about  doing this again in my lifetime. Any suggestions or
