Need help with Barney post and traveler.

Postby RRaedeke » Sun Apr 07, 2013 5:27 pm

I am doing some updates to Super Duck.
I bought a windward sheeting traveler and would like to add a Barney post.
I have the ability to custom fabricate something, but am in need of design assistance.

Couple of background details:
She is hull #79.
I'd like to keep the track in the traditional location.
The tack is a low profile, which I'm concerned will flex in the center under load.
Would like to build a post that also supports the center portion of the track if possible.
I'm not a racer, but don't want to rule out the possibility at some point.
I will be purchasing the needed swivel cam arm, stand up block, etc.

Would really love some pictures to work from.
Thanks for the help in advance.
