A lot of the new mains on boats are loose-footed mains.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Hmm ok here is a dodger set up on a C25, but that make no mention as to what the rig set up is, standard or tall. one could extend the dodger back a tad to where it just clears the main sheet, I suppose...


Edit: I have seen main sheets rigged to where rather than extend back to the Traveller, they have a set up where they go from a single point on the boom to a point on the starboard and port side. Would it be possible to rig a setup like that forward (say, close to where the boom vang is attached) on the boom, or would the load be too much and create a possible point of failure?

Skrap-

If the boom is currently setup for an end-boom mainsheet, it would be unwise to set it up for a mid-boom mainsheet, as the boom generally needs to be a bit heavier for a mid-boom mainsheet. Also, the leverage you need and the tackle size usually has to be larger as well. If you have a 4:1 tackle as an end-boom mainsheet, you may need to get a 6:1 for a mid-boom mainsheet.

yeah, I think I am looking for something that just isn't feasable on my boat.

The Catalina 25 can be converted to a mid-boom mainsheet without replacing the boom. The people on the Catalina 25 forum can tell you how to do it. Their forum is at the following website:

all the catalina 25s I've been sailing out of the club were modified from end boom mainsheet to put the traveler just in front of the companionway and I liked it better. Never seen one up as far as the boom vang attachment though.

sailormon6, where does the traveler go in the mod you are talking about?

That's what I've seen, too. It isn't legal in class racing, but, if you keep all the old hardware and don't remove the old fittings, it can be re-installed in a few minutes. There's a photo and description at the following link:

Ah, I meant the other front of the companionway. lol. They were down on the step up to the companionway. Didn't interfere with the pop top any that way. The pop top is really important on those boats cause without it all that pretend interior space isn't real IMHO. Of course my Ranger 24 has even less space below, but hey, at least it's not pretending to be a big boat.

the standard and the tall (I believe the hull is the same)

...actually, the tall rig has a deeper draft (the keel goes down deeper in the water) which is done to counteract the effect of the additional mainsail area...if a "budget-conscious" builder like Catalina adds the extra draft - you can be sure it's a fairly important thing...

(this is not a shot at Catalinas - I think they are decent boats)

Tenuki-

You're thinking about mounting the traveler on the bridgedeck.. That's a pretty common location for it. A bit of a pain when you're trying to get in and out of the companionway under sail though.
