Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Genoa sheet cars

unfortunately easiest way seems to be removing screws from stanchion base & move it aside to allow car to slide out & back in once replaced (mine had a broken 'lifting-wheel' replaced by home made washer); Impact screwdriver became a permanent fixture in the tool-shed on our 1982 Maramu.
I did not date cut off the end of the track, neither tried my luck on the screws holding the tracks on deck. Shy ?
Best of hammering

Sorry I somehow missed your reply on this till today.
Many thanks indeed for the info
on our Maramu it sounds similar to the SM - either the stanchion has to move somehow or the track!
It seems a little short sighted of Amel to not allow the Genoa cars off for replacement or repairs etc. A slightly shorter teach and a stopper bolt would have been ideal.
I’ve noticed a little wear on our port Genoa car and so I’d ideally like to replace both but this sounds like one of those big small jobs !
If anyone else has any experience of this also it’d be great to hear.
Many thanks again
