Hi Paul,
Your ideas are very helpful, what you point out makes perfect sense.I have not used my runners yet (as I am in the process of putting on all the parts to sail her as a cutter w/removable inner forestay) but I can see your point about the cam cleats on the fiddle blocks.
There is plenty of room on the coamings for the another pair of winches.
In my case I would leave the primaries where they are and use them as secondaries. I would then mount the new primaries behind them where there is room on the coaming. This way the turning blocks would lead to the new primaries. The new primaries would also be easier to reach from the helm as yours seem to be. Thanks.
