Moving the mainsheet further aft is simpler than moving it forward, as moving it aft reduces the loads on the mainsheet and the boom. You will probably need a different traveler, if you have to span the cockpit.
The photo faster was talking about is this:
You'd need to have some fairly hefty backing plates for the traveler...and I don't know if the cockpit seats are strong enough to handle the loads without modification.

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.
