Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] jib car track forward end

I talked with Antal in Italy directly and they had the exact replacement car with the bales on both ends. It sounded like it was a custom configuration just for Amel, but they had a supply in stock. They had me order through their US distributor, Euro Marine Trading, and had it to me in 2 weeks. Shipping from Italy was prorated among other items from Antal to Euro and only cost me $29. Cars were $260 each.

Can’t help you with specifics, I have not had to go there (yet!)… but your problem inspired me to look closely at my own boat to see what I can see...
The cabinetry our our boat runs out to the hull, and up to the deck. No false backs, just hull and deck covered with fabric. When I carefully feel the fabric liner under the deck I find a space at the hull deck joint where there is nothing above the fabric. I imagine careful peeling of the liner fabric will allow reveal the space where your lost nut has gone to hide.
But I do hope somebody else who has ACTUALLY been in there can give you more specific guidance.
Do let us know what you find!
By the way, what did you find for a replacement jib car?
