The mainsheet is already in the cockpit. It is attached to the traveller which runs across the cockpit between the seating area and the outboard motor well.

On a serious note, don't do it. You would need turning blocks near the mast, winches and cleats or stoppers on the cabintop. The Pearson 26 is a great little boat as designed. The stepped-up cabin top will complicate your intended layout. Why put additional hardware through the balsa-cored deck and put stresses on parts of the boat outside the original design?

Learn to go to the mast to raise and lower the sails.
