Product Features:

This series 55 transverse jib car is used with floating block B100-1371 to provide a 2:1 purchase to control the vertical height of the genoa sheet fairlead bearing surface enabling control of the twist of the jib. The athwartships angle of the sheeting of the jib is controlled by the control lines attached to hooks on the ends of the car, thus varying the angle of attack of the jib. Other custom components used in the transverse system include the outboard track end fitting G055-1182 and the inboard track end fitting G055-1183. Control lines are led below deck via through deck sheave boxes B100-1368 and B100-1369 mounted at the inboard ends of the two tracks.
