I am treating our 355 to a new set of sails for the upcoming cruising season here in NZ and I am going to go with a new 105% instead of replacing the self tacker.

Has anyone installed genoa tracks on a 355? Any tips and tricks to pass on?

Thanks

As far as you can purchase ideal track (slightly bent Lewmar size 1), you just have to drill, tap the hole with suitable threads, and bolt it (using TEFGEL or other isolation product).  You also have to add line feeders & cleats for control lines on cockpit outer coamings.
Tracks are bolt on the GRP plinth at the height & length of saloon windows.
(I've ordered the yard's optional ones 10 years ago... but never used them).

Hi Matt, our 355 has factory fitted Genoa tracks with lewmar fittings, if interested I can share some pictures and measurements. We added ronstan cam cleats so the cars can be adjusted from the cockpit which works great.

I laid the tracks yesterday, went well, used 33mm m6 self tappers. Once taking account of track depth and 10mm of GRP before hitting the plate we got about 7-8mm into the plate , Iím comfortable that will hold but will update if that is not the case.

Next step is to lay the pad eye for the jib sheet block between the car and winch. Only issue is there are 2 sets of reinforcement plans for the 355, 355-3040-010-00 (issued 08/10) and 355-3040-010-02 (issued 11/10) , I assuming the latest version is the one to use? The pad eye location (#2 on the plans) is shown in a very different location on each plan. My hull is 47 built in 2011.

Cannot help.
I have no blocks or pad eye there but I should have reinforcement plate.
My H355 is #57 built April 2011
