I hate drilling holes in my boats but would like to reinstate some heady tracks on my rl28 to where they were once located.
I bought some 25 mm t track thinking it would have the same fixing centres as the original only to find them to be different. I thought about redrilling them but that would be a bit messy.
So I am after 4 X 18 " or 72 " total of 1" t track that has the centres at 2 1/4"
I tried the recycled boat bits people coomera on gumtree and eBay but had no reply.
So if anyone has some in their shed or locker I would be interested in them.

So 2 and a quarter inches is pretty much 60mm. Is it a metric track? Brands are hard to identify I guess.

From the rl28 story by Robb Legg , he explains that the measurements used were imperial ...
So I reckon the track is 1" wide and centres b/n fixings 2 1/4 ".
Not quite your vintage bronze fittings but all the same from another era.

Well I have one pair now just looking for another pair and will be in business.

Oh and my classic cruising track from Richard Clapton
