Rigging a block-to-block boom traveler?
I just got a "new" gulf coast 20, and while she has most of the deck hardware, she is missing all the halyards, sheets, etc... So, I'm trying to figure out how everything works, and I'm feeling pretty good about it with just a couple of exceptions.
About 3 feet forward of the transom, up on the decks on both sides, are fairly decent sized (about 2.5") blocks with switches on them that make them either freely spinning or racheting. I'm assuming that somehow one rigs these up with a loop of line attached to the mainsheet to act as a traveler, but I'll be buggered if I can't wrap my brain around how it might actually work.
Anyone ever done this before? I'd appreciate any help!
