I should note that I'm also a fan of Garhauer. Guido helped customize my genoa cars to fit on my Merriman track, also at no additional charge.

The first was to get clearance for the traveler car in the channel on the bridgedeck, the second was to match the hole pattern in the bridgedeck and backing plate that was used for the old 70s vintage traveler. They also made custom turning blocks and cam cleats to facilitate trimming the traveler from behind the helm when single handing. And, BTW, the custom work was NC.

Might be a pound heavier than the Harken – but then it is a 15000 pound boat, so no biggie. And as cool as a Harken windward sheeting car is, that car alone costs more than my entire Garhauer traveler; and for that much, I can manage to release the leeward line when tacking.

If lining up old holes is an issue, you can call Schaefer and purchase a length of anodized track that has not been drilled (I did this for the baby stay track on my previous boat).  I took the old track and the replacement track to a local machine shop, and for a nominal fee had the new track cut and drilled to fit perfectly.
