Re: Mostly singlehanded...what lines should I run aft?

agree with SVA. Mid boom mainsheet seems to put more twist in the line and adds friction but with modern boats being more dependent on the main for sail the pleasure of not having a traveler in the cockpit outweighs the drawbacks of mid boom set up IMHO. Sometimes yank on the halyards up by the mast as some one else yanks from the cockpit. Nice to be able to have two people yank on it which is easy when LINES BROUGHT AFT (grin).
