Yes. Replace the double pulley at the stern with a triple and move the double to the end of the sheet. Reeve the line from the rear cam to the cheek block to triple to double to triple to double to triple to cheek to front cam.

It will take some experimenting to get the best running lines and you will need a longer sheet.

Simple. And don't forget to convert everything to metric. :roll:

Just switch to a single 3 to 1 system. It can operated from either the front or rear seat. No need for two separate lines.

I shall be getting out my British Imperial ruler (for measuring and not the Queen) and getting a triple block so that Mrs cc can share the sailing.

I might have to order without having the boat to hand. does anyone have an idea of how long a sheet i will need for the 3:1 two seat option?

8mm i presume (in good new English measurements)
