Has anyone been able to correct the movement of the cabin roof / companionway under the main sheet traveler. My traveler was upgraded by the past owner and Iím not sure if he installed the correct track ( strength ) and thatís why itís flexing in the center. Iím going to install harken 32mm big boat main sheet traveler track but I wanted to see if anyone has dealt with this and if there is a better fix.
Thanks

Mine still does it. I would also be interested in the fix. It seems like no matter what you bolted there, it will flex that area unless somehow the deck itself were strengthened. Maybe a big backing plate? Could rig tension help?

I was planning on dropping the headliner and laminating two wide pieces of G-10 to the under side of the cabin roof on both sides of the companionway to spread the load and replacing the teak raiser with the Harken 1849 track risers see link.

Weird, mine doesn't flex but when I changed it out 6 years ago there was two good size wet cores where the track bolts on, maybe you have the same thing and that's why it is flexing?
