With the pop-top they really didn't leave a good place for it.

We do use it while racing, it's just got very limited range and it's hard for anyone but the helms person (who is busy steering) to access.

Thanks for the reply Trevor - nice looking website. I'm just up the pike from you (Pgh.) I will be in touch once I have all of the hardware for the new traveler

Yeah, the stock C25 traveler leaves a lot to be desired (though you can squeeze a couple-three degrees with it.) The tiller jockey and sheeter always seem to be in each others way! Mounting the new traveler just behind the companionway trim - just enough space for sanding and a brush for applying Cetol. We don't see the height as an issue - shallow step to begin with. Not cutting the boom or removing stock traveler - just in case the next owner is a racer. I will be posting pix on the C25 forum when complete.
