The proper name would probably be a - 'split base' double tackle .... @ (4:1) .

its ability to act as a traveller is very limited .... cant move this traveller to windward or 'drop' the traveller without having the boom also rise (but not as much as without such arrangement and only using the 'normal' in-line blocked mainsheet system). You're going to need a very strong VANG to make this common old-fashioned system 'work well'.

Have something similar on the MC. Not the best for sailing close to the wind. Dan S/V Marian Claire

Definitely not something that would replace a traveler... Oldsailer, if that's tempting you as a way to get around your mainsheet/bimini conflict I don't think you could stand behind the wheel without entangling yourself in that arrangement....

A better pic. I raised the "sheet cam" off the deck. You pull down to disengage the sheet and it was very awkward down low. Dan S/V Marian Claire

It's a poor substitute for a traveler. The boom is nearly always too far down while sheeted to center, and rarely sheets well enough to give you good way toward windward.

We used to call the one we had (small boat - Kells 23 coaster) a "double tackle" but yep, sounds like he nailed it.

OldSailer, I have a friend with a set up something like that, but only has (2) blocks, one on a short traveler(about24" long)bent rod in the shape of a 'U' at the stern that the block/car(?) moves on, and the other bloch is on the boom. Is that something C&C used? If it is, I'm glad mine has a car!
