moving the main sheet
 
and possibly adding a traveller. The main sheet on my boat is attached to the floor. I would like to move it back to the back deck and also possibly put in a traveller, but with my set up I cannot see where I can do that without interferring with the tiller. Any ideas or am I just stuck with what I have?

The only way to move it to the back deck would be to split it...so the mainsheet is connected to both sides, and forms an inverted-v over the tiller. ;)

might just leave it then. Just learning and trying to get a bit more sail adjustment besides just the main sheet so thought a traveller might work well. I suppose if my traveller was above the tiller it might work. Might also be trying to make a silk purse out of a sows ear.

A traveller is going to be tough. Only place would be in front of the tiller across the cockpit. One way the rig the mainsheet to the back deck is the use two blocks, one on the port side and one on the starboard and run the sheet from one side, to the boom, to the other side, and back again.
