CS36T Traveler Replacement

Has anyone replaced the traveler on a CS36T? Mine is 1982 model.
Just bought the boat and will need all new running rigging.
Any help/past experiences would be appreciated.
Thanks

Is it..

Is it a mid boom sheeting arrangement or end boom the 36T came both ways?

It is mid-boom. On the coach top.
Thanks for your reply.

MY 36T has the mid-boom sheeting...while either setup has its pluses and minuses, I enjoy the pluses of the cabintop traveller so much that if I go out of my way to buy such...you might save your boat $$$ as you will have other opportunities to spend them.

Same question as sailingfool: Why are you replacing the traveler, itself?

If you do choose to replace it, for whatever reason, I encourage you to consider upgrading to a windward sheeting traveler system. The PO of our boat did that, and am I ever glad he did. Recently crewed on a 34' Hunter that doesn't have it, and appreciate it on our boat more than ever.
