main sheet travler

Thank you Faster, Sailingdog and Paulk. the picture you give me gives me the assurance this has been done. The original track is too short but at least gives me an idea of what size it needs to be. My thought is to back up the track with 1/4" stainless plate. I also thought I might need to support the center of the track by putting a 8" spacer bolted thru the floor of the cockpit.
To Paulk, I am thinking to move the point of contact to the boom forward to about 10 degrees off plum to help keep the sheet from fouling on the binnacle. is there anyway to get some picture of the inside of your cockpit locker? and maybe the celing of the quarter berth.
Thanks much,
