Harken track is grouped into seven categories: Micro, Small boat, Mid Range, Big Boat, Mini Maxi, Maxi and CRX. Each size of Harken genoa cars and travelers are engineered to handle specific loads and applications and Harken track is made to match the cars. Because of this, Harken cars must be used with the correct purpose made Harken track.
Determining the correct Harken track size for your boat
Traveler track size depends on a few different factors: your mainsail area, the location of the mainsheet on the boom (whether it's end sheeting or mid-boom sheeting) and whether your boat is a monohull or a multihull. See the selection guide tab to determine which Harken track to use for your sailboat.
Harken 13mm Micro Track
Harken Micro track comes in low and high-beam configurations. The wide track base adds stability and protects cored decks. A channel on the track bottom makes it easy to install on unfair decks and eliminates rocking on curved surfaces like booms or masts. Fastener holes fit both metric and imperial screws.
Harken 22mm Small Boat Track
Harken Small Boat Track comes in low or high-beam configurations. Use low-beam track when it's supported at each fastener hole. Use high-beam track when it must span a cockpit or other unsupported area. Choose between variable hole spacing and drilled track.
