I went from a 30-foot racer-cruiser with a tiller and the traveller right in front of me on the bridge deck to a 33-foot cruiser-racer with deck top traveller. I knew I wasn't going to like the lack of easy adjustability and I was right. I have gotten into the habit of dumping the traveller in a gust, and that seem to work much better than trying to use the mainsheet.
