    Default Bronze sail track

    Does anyone have any idea where to get 7/8" bronze sail track without going to bristol bronze or Rig-rite? Rig-Rite does'nt seem to want any business cause they don't answer their phones. How do these companies stay in business?

    You could buy an old mast. I picked up one for $50, and I was surprised to find that it had a track that was still in good shape.

    Default Bronze track

    I have also been trying to order bronze T track from Rig Rite...they say they have it (1") but cannnot tell me when they will ship it..some operation. You may want to try Marine Consignment of Wickford. Don't know where you are located. The store is in RI has is a great place to stroll through if you have a few hours. You can also give them a call at 401 294 8504. They have alot of bronze rough castings ...cleats etc. May luck out on the track if you catch them right.
    Best to you

    Here are two sources. When you see the price, you may decide that stainless is just fine.

    Toplicht

    R&W sells Davey bronze track.

    Thanks for the info. I will check out the stainless price. I have some stainless on my old mast but I cannot get it off. It's fused to the aluminum.
