Our traveler is set up like the one in the picture above, and it works well. One caveat is that you'll want some sort of rail to keep the mainsheet from wrapping around the binnacle (especially if you have gps screens for it to catch on, like the one in the photo). In a jybe, the ss rail in the photo looks like it will reach out and grab the loose part of the mainsheet and you'll be doing a chinese firedrill to keep from losing expensive stuff and steer at the same time.
