Selecting Replacement Sailboat Hardware
An important consideration when choosing new hardware for sailboats is the working loads that the hardware will be subjected to. It is best to get hardware that in the middle of it's reccomended usage range and has at least the strength of any parts that it is replacing. When choosing blocks, deck organizers and other pieces of sailboat hardware that deflect lines important considerations include the size of the line and the load on the line. Consider what you liked about your boat's old harware set up and what you are looking to change with new harware for your sailboat. Blocks vary not only in sheave diameter but also in working load, so it is important to consider the load that you are exerting on your sailboat hardware blocks.
When shopping for replacement genoa cars, traveler cars or other sailboat hardware that uses a track it is very important to determine the type of track that your boat has as different tracks and cars are not compatible. Both Harken and Lewmar make track that make variable hole spacing track so you can replace sailboat hardware that uses track without drilling new holes in your boat.
