Re: Mainsheet system
I set up fine tunes on pretty much every boat I sail. I would run a 6:1 with a 12:1 fine tune on your boat, but with a very short throw on the fine tune. This gets the excess line out of the cockpit.
In order to do this instead of dead ending the line on the becket, add a simple block. On the other end attach a small block w/ becket and cam. I away from the boat right now so I can't get a picture, but it's pretty commonly done. It only gives you a few feet of fine tune, but that's all you generally need.
