Q&A: Why do I want a switch Battcar system?
A Switch Battcar system cuts stack height in half, so putting on a sail cover or connecting/disconnecting your halyard is a much easier task. The system works by alternately dropping mainsail cars onto port and starboard storage racks. Headboard cars articulate and pass through the switch, reducing stack height even more.
