Hylas Discussion / Re: Potential new Hylas owners looking to visit a 46 and a 49

Nirvana is a 97 46 wet in Connecticut. We would be happy to host you for a sail or visit.  She has had a lot of work done in refit, mod and upgrades in the last few years with some touch ups and one major repair due before we are satisfied but she sails like a dream and is well fit out.  Feel free to PM me if you are interested.

I have owned 2 different 46"s (long story) and chartered a 49 for a couple of weeks, and have a good friend that had a 49.  Both great boats. Either one is a go to boat.  If you find one that fits your needs, in good shape, without too many hours, then jump on it.  All Hylas's are in pretty high demand right now.  You may even think about splitting the difference, and ordering a new 48.  Just a thought.  Good Luck.

I had one installed on my 44 last year after getting tired of breaking plastic slides.  It's great!  The sail drops in 5 seconds if I just release the halyard.  Hoisting takes much less effort.  Nothing sticks or binds.

If you are installing it yourself you will need 2 cans of McLube to lubricate the track as you insert it.  The sail cars are inserted from the bottom.  Then a lock goes on the bottom of the track,  You don't use the existing mast gate except to insert the track.

You won't regret it!

Thank you Jim.  I guess i wasn't clear on one thing; it is where they put the gate to insert the slugs that is way up in the air.  I believe that will be lower with the new system.  Thank you for the feedback regarding your experiences...greayly appreciated.

Cheers

I do not know if it will help your stack height but you will not find a better slide system for your main. Few moving parts, no corrosion issues and easy to install. Installed one on our previous boat and would have one now if our current boat did not have in-mast furling.

Anyone using the tidesmarine sailtrack system.  (https://www.tidesmarine.com/sailtrack/index)  It came recommend due to ultra low friction hoisting/dousing, easier reefing, the the ability to lower my gate from the existing 7ft above the seck location.  Any feedback good or other?    About $2000 delivered for a 54ft hoist.   Since we are setting up the boat for double handing, ease of operation reefing if key.

Thanks
