I need to shim the upper camber on 2014 Naish Indy 7.6 sail. An attempt to remove the camber from the batten stopper was PITA and not successful. The stopper has two locking teeth, which prevent the camber coming off the stopper (see the pic). There are no zippers/velcros around the cambers on this sail. Reaching through the luff is not easy.

Is there a trick to remove the camber without damaging anything?

Thanks!

Andrei.

I took the bottom cams out of my 5 and 5.8 Stealth and Grand Prix by turning the cam up and down until they slipped past a notch. Appears to be no damage to the notches, but I don't use bottom cams for easier rigging and rotation. Both still have 3 cams anyways.
Contact Naish if you need an official answer.

Hi Andrei,

As Leed said, it should come off if you rock the cam up & down. I have those same cams on my Indy, Stealth & Redline. All of them remove & insert the same way. My sails came with a packet of shims & a small instructional manual on removing the cams so I didn't figure out how to remove or shim them on my own.

Thanks! It helped! I also used a spacer on the side where I was rocking the cam to. It gave me additional leverage.

I did. It takes a while to hear back.

Thank you for the reply.
Interesting. Back in 2014 when I received the new sail there were no rigging instructions, no shims... Could be just missing. I bought a set of shims from Sailworks.
