traveler and standing rigging on 22' Oday

I recently bought my first "real" sailboat-a 1974 22' Oday. Apparently it was built as a budget model. It doesn't have a traveler. The mainsheet is attached to a small triangle on the backstay. It works ok but I think I'm missing some of the fine tuning available if I had a traveler. I've seen travelers mounted on the cabin top but I think it would clutter up access to and from the cockpit. Since the mainsheet is attached to the aft end of the boom would it be practical to mount an aftermarket traveler on the transom?
If so, how long should it be?-Full width or somewhat shorter? Also I'm guessing the standing rigging is original and should be replaced. What is a good source for "ready-made" replacement parts?

Clear thinking. I sailed a 31' Southern Cross and found your solution expedient on that boat and also on a recently purchased Oday 22: keep clutter off amidships and fitted a traveler aft of the tiller on our Oday 22, just purchased here in Wisconsin for day sailing. Runs fairly and least likely to foul.

Go with as long a traveler as will fit. You want to be able to dump the traveler in puffs, without having to dump the sheet... Although a vang will keep the boom from lifting, a traveler is still more betterer...

How about a complete kit? Probably overkill though.

You'll have to figure out how you are mounting it, if the tiller has to go under it (likely)... you'll have very little room to lift the tiller... and there is the whole how do you reinforce, and raise where it'll be located. That's one of the downsides of gudgeons and pintals, mounted on the stern, having a stern mounted traveler isn't as practical... I know mid-cockpit stinks for getting around, but it is actually the best place to keep the skipper's eye's forward, and can be adjusted with a free hand... Like the J/24, J/22, Capri 25, Capri 22, B25, and most racers in that size. If you are cruising though, then this position isn't ideal.

Try contacting Rudy at D&R marine, they have/sell a lot of parts for oday. And if he has the time may be able to give you some pointers
