The system consists of a one-piece UHMW track and an “owner-defined” selection of matching slides and batten receptacles designed for smooth, long-lasting operation.

The system is priced at $45.00 per foot of track ordered (this price includes the slides and batten receptacles). It is shipped via NZ Couriers and is ready to install.

The system offers minimal stack height, less weight aloft and low-friction performance rivaling systems which cost more than twice as much. The track can be installed without going aloft and, in most cases, no holes need to be drilled in the mast.


The UHMW track is machined to fit more than 100 different mast luff groove shapes (internal flat / internal round) as well as most common external track shapes. The track is UV stable, unaffected by salt water and available in seamless lengths to 65’.


The 316 stainless slides are hand-polished to a smooth, low-friction finish. They are available in several sizes (see pages 14 and 15 of Catalog for details).

Batten Receptacles

The Tides batten receptacles are offered in two sizes which accept both flat and round battens. They are connected to the 316-stainless slides via a 10mm stud and rotate freely when raising or lowering the main. The Tides system will also work with any competitive batten receptacles using the same 10mm stud configuration.
