The sheet is easily cleated or released with a flick of the wrist from either side.



I use a powerful boom vang in lieu of a traveler. I started with a 3:1 tackle and added a single block to cascade it to 6:1. The picture shows another block in the system to make it 12:1 but that was TOO powerful--I bent the boom.
I like your boat. Beautiful.

AllThumbs Yeah, I am pretty sure it's 4:1 on this boat.

sailingdog Exactly...BTW, on a smaller boat, you might not need a six-to-one purchase, and might be able to get away with just a four-to-one or so.

Quickstep192 I think mine originally had just one side with a cam cleat and the previous owner swapped out the fiddle block. It would be simple enough to do if you wanted cleating on both sides. If each side were independent, I'd be able to have different settings for each tack, but it's not possible the way it is now. I don't have the issue with the tiller; mine is inboard of the sheeting.

sailingdog Allthumbs-

It would work just like what QS192 drew, but one of the othermost bottom blocks with camcleats is a padeye instead, and it only adjusts from one side. The actual functionality is no different. It is a bit harder to use, since it will be on the high-side on one tack and the low side on the other...but still should work just fine.
