Yes. I have a spirit 23 'poptop' that came with the main sheet traveler across the cockpit seats right in the way of the cabin. I wanted a better solution for us old folks so we did not trip on the traveler getting in and out of the cabin. ( we are in our 70's). My solution was to install a mount between the cockpit seats, just below their level and about 24 inches forward of the stern. It is out of the way for everyone except the helmsman who must cross it, but as low as I put it, it works great for us and allows some adjustment in the trim of the main, especially in light airs. It might look strange but it works for us

I installed a traveler across the front of the cockpit. It really adds a far greater ability to adjust the main. I race mine so this tuning is critical. Do not use the pin type traveler as it is a pain to adjust easily as needed. I got a used one from an Etchel and adapted my own block and jam cleat system. Not sure how to post pictures on this site.
