I think you'll find all kind of "fun facts" I've dealt with the assymetrical issue.

I have seen the catalina 22 and I don't want that type.
Look up the Telstar trimaran, several A-frames and yokes make a smooth stepping, but I'm just not that cool.
I already stress over that damn sailtrack, mine gets more lubing than I do! I didn't see wedging beneath th' hand holds as positive as stanchion base, I feel I have good control and allows for the torque. I used my 1/4" Spinoa halyard since it's hung outboard on a bale, I need to clear a midmast radar reflector. I'm gonna hang the antlers on her when it stops raining. This is a pix of the masthead, bale, side block is for the topping lift. I end up with 4 line aloft, there is also a st.stl. strap beneath the masthead crane, I use a Hood 705 and this strap/guide prevents "issues" with the roller and doesn't interfere at all w/Main halyard.
