Re: relocating main sheet...just to one side?
When I bought my boat, the previous owner had moved the traveler from the cabin top into the cockpit. From a racing perspective and in terms of mechanical advantage it was a better location. The problem was that the cockpit on the santana is not that big, and I bought it to get the family out sailing, and I wanted a clear unobstructed cockpit for my then toddler son, so I moved it back to it's original position. Cabintop travelers are definitely not ideal in my mind.
