I noticed he has outside jib tracks. Anyone know if those are available and can be installed on a MK1?

Jon,

I have the outside tracks, the boat was delivered to the original owner with them. I assumed it was Catalina that installed.


A great article, but what did we expect..............

I talked to Warren at Catalina, apparently not a Catalina installed item. His guess was a dealer installed them. Do you have a picture of your outside tracks or know the length?   Thanks.   Jon W.

I have never seen a 34 or a 36 without the outside track, The outside track is used for reaching with the genoa or for the spinnaker sheets/guys.

I guess Warren was mistaken then. My boat doesn't have them and would like to add for spinnaker and using a whisker pole. Spoke to Len in parts this time and he's looking for the part number. Apparently all come from the factory in straight sections and they are bent as you install them.

Gary are yours 1" or 1 1/4"? Thanks for the help.

Gary, based on the price list, they were an OPTION.  My PO chose to NOT buy that option.  I do not have outside tracks.

Like I said, all of the 34's and 36's I have seen have had the outside tracks (6 on my dock), but I guess I haven't seen enough.

My outside tracks are 1 1/4".

How far aft are your outboard tracks mounted? Got a photo?

Guys : My 1988 does not have a "rail" genoa track. 

To fly my asymmetrical spinnaker - What I did was attach a large snap shackle with a single block to the stern cleats.  Then I ran the sheet line thru that block back to the primary winch.  Worked Great!!   :clap
