Re: Traveler setup?

I have never seen that done... It looks like the lines go around the opposite sides of the traveler. utchuckd has the best example of how the lines should be run. ignore the mainsheet in that, and focus JUST on the traveler.

If you take the ends on the left and the right, and tie them together, you have a "continuous line," that'd be the only way to properly make that continuous. What I am seeing with what you have now is NOT continuous, as you have a defined left and right termination.

But what gets me is how the left side wraps around the traveler car on the right side. Maybe it's a funky picture I dunno.
