Used on free-floating car systems without end controls, especially for jib and staysail boom Travellers. Originally used by Boatbuilders to avoid the additional cost of Traveller Controls, this item is no longer available. If your system originally used this part, it is recommended that you switch to a Line Control System, see Line Control Conversion Kits, below.

 


NF 610 Traveller Control Ends
Control Ends for Travellers come in 2 configurations, those that mount on the Track itself, and those that mount on the Deck adjacent to the end of the track. In cockpits, it is also common to use blocks mounted on the cockpit sides for controls. Control Ends are available in a variety of configurations for different purchases with or without cam cleats.
Track-mount Control Ends are available with or without cam cleats for 3-1 purchase systems. As the Track-mount Control Ends do not cover the end of the track, they are normally used with the NF 611 or NF 611N Track Ends (above), which do.
New-style Track-mount Control Ends feature easily replaceable sheaves. Old-style units, especially common on Catalina Yachts, have permanently mounted sheaves (of several different sizes), but we can replace the sheaves in them and modify them so the sheaves are removable, if sent to us. This can usually be done for less than half the cost of new units.
