Moving control lines to the cockpit?

Ok I have a small sailboat only 24. S/V Cloud. I plan on doing some work on her this coming spring. Maybe abit this winter! Although working and living on a small boat in the winter might not work out so good. I will see what happens. I have a question about running my control lines to the cockpit. Since I single-hand a lot I was thinking of doing this but I was wondering at what cost would I be paying by doing it. The idea of not having to leave the cockpit to hoist the halyards sounds like a winner but how much more effort would I be paying in terms of load on the line would it cost. Right now I have to go to the mast to raise my main and jib without it being too tough to pull up the halyards but in somewhat bad weather it can be a pain. So anyone that has done this or any input would be appreciative! Thanks Dan
