Simple Deck Layout

Trying to figure this all out before launching, and I apologize in advance for my lack of pictures! Hope to get some pictures this weekend.
SeaMist has a starboard side cabin-top winch, right behind 2 stoppers.
2 cockpit winches, a winch on the mast, and genoa tracks on the side-decks.
The traveler is forward in the cockpit.

I am thinking that I need to run the jib sheets through the tracks and back to the cockpit winches?
If the halyard main is long enough, I run that through a stopper and to the cabin top winch?
Is there a line from the boom vang that needs to go through a stopper?
The mainsheet goes to a cockpit winch?? What other lines need to be accounted for?

Sorry for the questions- just trying to get ahead before I take lessons prior to launch.

Re: Simple Deck Layout

OK for the jib sheets.

The Jib halyard has to run to a winch. The winch on the mast is for one halyard, the other should run back to the cabintop stopper/winch. You need to investigate your mainsheet tackle to see if it has a camcleat in it - if not, then it most likely runs to the mast then back to the other stopper. I would expect the boomvang tackle to include a camcleat, if the second stopper is free, maybe....

Re: Simple Deck Layout

Thanks for the prompt, expert advice!
I love this site.
I guess it will make sense to use the mast winch for the genoa (since it is roller furling), and run the main halyard back, if it is long enough.
Hope to post pictures of the mainsheet and vang next week. I distinctly remember the camcleat on the mainsheet.
Learning this stuff is fun.

Re: Simple Deck Layout

If your mast winch is on the port side it's normally for the jib; starboard side it's for the main.

With sailboats if there's more than one of something, the one with the most letters is usually on the starboard side.

left/right
port/starboard
red/green
jib/main
etc./etc.lol

Re: Simple Deck Layout

On my 25, I go forward to hoist my main and reef so the mast winch and cleats are used and the halyard is taken care of. The jib sheet goes to either side around the winch and to a cleat. The roller furler line goes through fairleads and blocks to the **** pit, possibly around the winch and to a cleat. Cleat could be a cam cleat, horn cleat, clutch, stopper or the like.
