I don't see why you can't simple remove the cam cleats that are attached to the end block on the traveler and run the lines through a bullseye fairlead, under the dodger and to a camcleat mounted on the aft end of the cabin top for the traveller.

That would probably be the easiest way to do it, and still retain full function of the traveller. It doesn't represent a tripping hazard of any kind either.

BTW, why are you calling it a California Dodger, how does that differ from any other kind of dodger?? And how do you like the line clutches, they appear to be Garhauers.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
