Re: How should my traveler be run...?
The camcleat on the car would look to be pretty useless, I dont see how you can set the control line in the cams unless you lean over to be in front of the cam, so that it will open. When the traveller is down, you need to lean to leeward to set the line, and you may need to set it every tack...I would use the clam cleats only.
You are more likely to be setting the traveller down, than up, and the clamcleats allow you to set it down once for both tacks and then ignore it. With two lines in one cam, well I can't see how that wont be a pain.
Certified...in several regards...
