Length and holes distance. Antal produces tracks good for different kinds of installation: choose a track for slugs in case of masts with groove. Masts without a groove or wooden masts will require installation with screws or glue, being glue a good solution for tracks on a carbon mast. Hole distance. Available single and double hole distance, for the different demands of ease of installation and holding strength of the track. Length. Antal realizes 2 and 3 meters long tracks. Mainly depending on the position of the mast when the track will be installed, one chooses the short or the longer track length. A 3 meters long track is recommended if the mast is horizontal (non mounted masts), while the 2 meters long track is easier to install in case with vertical masts (mast already on the boat).
