Re: Traveler setup?

RB,
My guess is that it's just not threaded correctly. The ends of the control line should land at the traveller block leaving the continuous line (loop) as the control. The end blocks look like they have built in cam cleats, Do these pop open when you pull the line in one direction (towards the center) and jam when you pull outboard? Was this threaded like this when you bought the boat or maybe the PO just put the line back on to show the boat and did it wrong.

John
