Last week the traveller on Encore started to shed a few pieces of plastic when we were out sailing and I knew this meant a few new bearing were in my future. What I didn’t know is that the IYE Traveller is no longer made and that the parts are a bit scarce. Unfortunately being scarce in sailing lingo means “expensive” … but $69.00 plus $12.00 UPS shipping for a tiny envelope with 4 plastic wheels seems like highway robbery — Rig-Rite, Inc.
So … what do you do when you need them? (I’m contemplating making a few from some blank Delrin stock so I have them for next time!)
