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.

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.
