I can not find an exact picture, but this is the best I could do. Instead of the swivel base mounting on the floor it mounts on the starboard gunnel back by the tiller post.

The Mainsheet attaches to a becket on the swivel, runs up to a double block mounted towards the end of the boom, down to a single block mounted on the gunnel on the port side, back up to the boom, and finally back to and through the jaws on the cam cleat.

The whole thing makes like an inverted V. No traveler is used.
Note; The harken photo is not exactly how it is set up, but should give you the idea.
