I'd recommend looking at Garhauer. When I spoke with Schaeffer and Lewmar concerning the problems with mounting a traveler on my boat, neither was very helpful. When I spoke to Garhauer and Harken, they spent a couple hours each going over the possible options with me. For the amount of money you're going to be spending on a traveller, go with someone who will help support you through the selection and installation process. I'm probably going with Garhauer, since they're a good deal less expensive than Harken... but haven't fully decided yet.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
