Question Ericson 35 traveler placement...

I am starting to research a boat to purchase with the intent to live aboard and eventually outfit for bluewater. From what I have read so far I am drawn to Ericson 35's (mid-70's or so) for both their cockpit and cabin layout. I will be single-handing and it seems that having the traveler located right there forward of the helm would be convenient. My buddy (Hunter owner) thinks that it would just be one more thing to trip over as you move about the cockpit. I think he is just a clutz. Anyway, what do owners think...? Is the traveler location a problem? A benefit? Any issues with cockpit drainage?

I appreciate any input I can get.
