Jeff, thank you for the reply.

The boat is an O''Day 302 and I have a 4 y.o. North Sail full batten main with a 140 genny head sail (also 4 y.o. North)
Part of the issue is I don''t have any way to move the traveller without going out on the cabin roof and physically moving it (no pulley set up). That would mean I''d have to furl the genny and turn into the wind. (another question, what is an outhaul?)

I did a search of this site and noticed quite a few posts on this subject. You''re rigth, I don''t have the proper or newer options on the boat. Oh well, part of the reason for buying this boat was to learn how to sail (maint., upgrades, sail, etc...) and one day live in the three 80"s (80 degree air/water with 80'' vis.
