I have a 1979 hobie 16 with the old jib traveler cars that include the cam cleat right on them. My faithful crew was having trouble unjamming them, and I've learnt that there is a newer, better design. Is it easy enough to upgrade? ie, can the new jib sheet car go in the old track, and can I just rivet or screw on the swivel cleat base pad?
Here are the old and new systems, respectively, snarfed from ebay photos:
Is there a simpler/cheaper alternative? Is anyone shipping these to Canada?
I should also note, that my current jib sheet cars are not staying in place when travelled out.
