Faster-That certainly was fast!

Moving to the end would put the traveler at the aft end of the cockpit. This brings me to another question: must I have the mainsheet perfectly vertical from boom end-to-traveler car, or could I have the traveler slightly aft (10 inches) of vertical?

As far as steering with this goes: the boat was converted to wheel by the PO. The only gripe I think I may encounter with this setup is interference while standing directly behind the wheel.
