while you can sheet your main to centerline, you shouldn't do it with your jib. It has to be offset a few degrees so it will create the 'slot' effect with the outside of the main when both are filled and on the wind.
too close in on the jib and it will be stalled, since the angle of attack with the wind will be wrong (meaning it's in too far).
You might look for a 'bar'-type traveler rather than a track, it might be cheaper and available used?
