Older Bavaria (1985) Rigging

Hello Fellow Bavaria owners,

I need some help addressing a couple of issues with my older boat.
Single Hand Sailing: What rigging changes do I need to make to single hand
my Bavaria 1985 32' 960?
Has anyone in the "Sailnet Community" sailed this boat alone? Currently all my lines lead aft to the cabin top. The traveler is forward of the dodger. What thoughts do you have regarding an alternative arranging of the sheets to make them within easy reach of the helm?

Thank You,

Hi pam

I have a boat that originaly had an arangement similar to yours.
Here is howe we solved it.

Mainsheet System

And just to avoid any confusion, the blocks at the chain plate are fixed with dyneema strops to the bottom togle of the turnbuckle and its hanging on a shock cord from the top of the turnbuckle.

Hope this helps
