Re: Broken shackle on Main Sail car

Paul Osterberg

Our old care was sliding with friction, so we took it appart and all the balls whent all over the place. We retrived them and washed them in water to get rid of eventual salt crust, and with some effort my wife and I put it together and put all the balls in place again. Nothing you do without a helping hand. Now it works much better almost as new. I would be suprised if it was not possible to put in a new shackel as well.
