Enjoying this thread as well. I am looking at the possibility of doing some of the same. I would like to see more pics of these set-ups.
My boat has mast winches for the halyards and the sheets on the coamings, but none on the cabin top. Newport, do you have winches further aft on the cabin as well as those oddly-placed winches in the picture? If not, you could reposition perhaps?
For me, main and jib halyards and vang would be the only lines I would like to have in the cockpit. This would give the ability to quickly and safely drop sail.
