Purchasing Slides for your Existing Tides Track System
If your Track System was purchased PRIOR to 2006, you will need to order "SM" stainless steel slides.
If your Track System was purchased AFTER 2006, you will need to order "SS" stainless steel slides.
In 2006, Tides Marine improved the consistency of the internal shape of the SailTrack when they changed the shape of the knives used to machine the track shape. This eliminated a step that was once done by hand.
This modest change to the track also required an associated change in sail slides that are made from stainless steel. Please see below.
