Thanks for answering my question. The only concern I have with the traveler is that there is no way to avoid running the line to the gooseneck, then the base of the mast, and aft to the cockpit. If I use two cheek blocks on deck, I could have the line run to a fairlead in front of the dodger cowling, then through, without having the line running from the mast on back. I have a thing against lines running on the deck - but I suppose it'd be no different than the stays'l sheet. Then I could use the same boom vang system I've been using with my end-of-boom sheeting.

If we decide to go this route, I'll be in touch for a set of bails.

Aaron N.
