We have a cabin top traveler, the main sheet goes aft through a block and deck top organizer and then to a rope clutch. Simple single handing setup but not that cool for trimming main sail. I would love to have something a little more complex, but if you are looking for single handing ease this is it. So I assume that you have a cleat block combo, like a main cleat / ratchet cleat or a traveler car with cleat? Just remove it...add a single block instead and run it with a deck top organizer back to a single clutch... or run all of your lines aft and have a double or triple clutch on each side of the cabin with winches down-line if needed... I am not sure what you are looking for. This is the simplest solution and a common layout for fun sailing.
