Big Boat Captive Ball Traveler Cars are built to handle high loads on boats from 32 to 50 ft., and up to 70ft. with coupled cars. The one-piece solid aluminum construction is lightweight and strong. Machined aluminum Hardkote-anodized races permit Torlon® bearings to transition smoothly from the active to return race for smooth trimming or easing. Stainless steel wire guides keep the balls captive when the car is off the track. Pivoting shackle/toggle cars have low pivot points to handle non-vertical loads. Blocks attach directly to the toggle for a low-profile, compact system. The toggle serves as a stand-up for the mainsheet block. Modular design allows you to increase the purchase of your system using Purchase Upgrade Kits.
