This series 30 traveller car (torlon ball bearings)is used on athwartship mainsheet systems where a 4:1 purchase is required.The mainsheet dead ended on one side of the boat passing via the mainsheet car sheaves up to two blocks on the boom before being led to a winch on the opposite side of the boat.The important feature of the car is the stirrup incorporating three series 75 sheaves RF78000 keeping the car very compact,and prevents the problem of having three independent blocks flailing around causing damage to each other and to the boats structure.The control line purchase of 3:1 is achieved if used with end control RC13086.This type of car is often used on cruising multihulls up to approximately 14m long where a long straight track is used. This type of traveller car is used exclusively on the Australian manufactured Lightwave 45’ performance cruising catamaran.
