Mainsail Handling Battcar System - Overview
Tame your main - Handling a big mainsail? Wrestling a flogging main
onto the boom? Raising the genoa, but not the main
when it’s windy? Sailing solo?
A Harken Battcar System along with full-length
battens helps raise, douse, and reef with ease and
acts as extra crew if you’re sailing shorthanded.
Battcar systems outperform in-mast or in-boom
furling, cost less, and you don’t need to
recut your sail.
