rerigging Coronado 15 mainsail

I dont know if many people on here have any history with the Coronado 15 but I just remodeled/restored one and it looks great but i cant figure out the mainsail rigging. I currently have the center traveler and I read how people have relocated/removed it and went to a stern bridle. Does anyone have tips or pictures on this set up of rigging?

I own a c-15 and converted to a center-boom mainsheet system by screwing a holt-allen cam cleat and block to the cockpit floor.Works great. I wouldnt recommend a stern bridle because you cant trim the boom to the centerline,but the easiest way to do it would be to drill a hole through the transom on either side of the tiller and use either cable or line to attach a block(or blocks) on the loop

I think I can visualize what your talking about. When I was picturing in my mind by doing a single rope scenario with a V bridle, all that would happen when I try to center the boom it would just pull down on the boom and not actually center the boom. Could you elaborate a bit more, really paint the picture to a 3rd grader here, on the set up. I currently have the round block at the base of the split for the keel with a swivel cam cleat. The traveler is currently is in front of that. So are you saying have a single wire/rope with a pulley going from the boat rear edge up to the boom? Once it is at the boom how is the pulley set up? By chance do you have any pictures? my email is jaredburrough@yahoo dot com Anything you can help me out with would be awesome.
