I have a lot of questions about doing this right. The task seems to be getting more challenging and expensive. First step seems to be to relocate the traveler to the deck just behind and between the deck grab rails. When tapping on the deck it sounds hollow. The traveler feet back plates will be inside the cabin but I don't want to compress the interior and deck. How is the deck built? Do I need to reinforce the interior or the deck? Will relocating the traveler affect the way the boat feels, heals and sails? Sure appreciate some advice.

Yes it has a Tiller and the traveler is currently just behind the tiller in front of the stern locker/ seat. I am tending to agree that I should just go with a smaller bimini trimmed it to the current configuration or move the traveler further to the stern rather than mid boom on deck. The balsa core deck kind of spooked me. Not sure what the potential harm might be in compressing the balsa. The 3" x 6" plate on the feet for the new traveler would spread the load but the mid boom position seems to make pressures much worse.
