Q&A: Why do I want a switch
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.
