How many blocks do you have on your mainsheet?

Presently I have 2 blocks with a total of 4 sheeves and the block with the Cam Cleat is on the hoop above the rudder. We had at times difficulties securing the sheet in the cam cleat, it being on an angle and it was always when we were in bad weather bouncing all over the place.

I'll therefore bring the sheet to be cleated at the deck level and probably have a cam cleat both on port and starboard.

Have any of you rigged your mainsheet with 3 blocks on the boom and 4 blocks on the hoop in order to reduce the tension? And if so are you pleased with it?

Thanks for you help
