SD I have different sails so marking the line is not possible. I have the track marked with numbers, and a scale, that's what we use for reference.

Scarp. "coverting" the point by point genoa traveler to a adjustable one is easy and not so expensive.

You'll needtimes 2 off course)

1)a track stop (that you may already have, if you do just glue a rubber bumper to absrob the shock when the traveler comes aft
2) A track horizontal bolck or you can bolt a regular foot block, in front of the track
3) a line
4)jaw cleat
5) 1 hour of your time and time to remove the locker pin on traveler

That's all
