Thanks, Alan.  Do you have pics of your new setup?

Hi Kent,

After breaking two of those slider thingys, we had fabricated a solid aluminium piece with a slot in it and had it welded to the boom. We connected the mainsheet block to it with dyneema.
I've noticed that older Maramus actually have the mainsheet attachment welded to the boom, as does the 54.
I wonder why Amel decided to go with that slider idea, which seems rather Mickey Mouse to me ?
