Cabin Top Traveler and Main Sheet

My Islander 30 has a cabin top traveler.My Catalina 25 had an end-boom pulley for the sheet and metal bar for traveler - which never moved.

So since my new boat has a traveler and main sheet combo, it is impossible to reach the main sheet ( without stretching the main sheet out 4-5 feet, and then I cannot 'lock-it-in' because the sheet's locking mechanism engages the sheet with pulling up. You have to be very close to use it.

Is this the norm with cabin top traveler/main sheets?
How do you supposed to sail by yourself if you can't reach/modify the main sheet?
