Isomat Spinnaker Cars


Most Isomat Mast Sections feature an integral Spinnaker Track (approximately 3 1/8" wide) extruded into the forward side. Isomat makes 2 different kinds of Spinnaker Cars to fit this track. Cars slide freely and are positioned on the track with the use of a line control system. Both Cars are aluminum and slide on plastic liners, which fit all* of the mast sections of this type.* Cars include SS shackle (towing bail) on each end for attachment of control lines. Most Masts will have one side of this track cut out (approximately 5" long) near the deck, to allow for mounting the car without unstepping the mast. If this cutout is not there you will have to cut it, or unstep the mast to install these Spinnaker Cars.
* The Isomat NG-105 Mast Section is the largest of this type and has maximum outside dimensions of 11" x 7 3/8" (283mm x 182mm). Cars to fit some NG-105 sections require special liners (NGA-52-105). As the 2 different NG-105 Mast Sections are difficult to distinguish in the field, Orders for Spinnaker Cars for NG-105 Mast Sections are shipped with both sets of liners, credit will be issued for one set of liners upon return. To order a Spinnaker Car to fit an NG-105 Mast Section add –105 to the part number.
If in doubt about which Mast Section you have, See Isomat Mast Specifications & Components.
