That's an awesome setup Ron. I may be copying.
Just a brummel splice on the lines to change line size.. FYI... But because my traveler line (also swiftcord) was so much smaller I couldn't tuck the 7mm line into it... So I just tucked it back into itself.. Sealed the deal with a bit of heat shrink under the stopper ball just because.. This could just as easily be done with a fisherman's knot.. but wouldn't look as cool, and couldn't be described to new crew as "the end with the white ball"....
Most of the things I have done to the boat to get ready for this season revolve around being able to teach someone to crew for me in minutes (hence the labeled traveler
) In at least half my races last year my crew had never sailed before, and the other half I was sailing with inexperienced crew... Only once all summer did I have the pleasure of racing with skilled crew.. So making things easy to learn, and explain is critical for me..
The only problem I may have is the traveler line I am using is small enough that if tension was lost for whatever reason I think it would be possible for it to jump off the sheave and become pinned over or under the sheave.
And I should add.. for those who wish to split the jib sheet.. I don't know exactly what the Jib sheet length is or should be with this setup. Right now mine is a bit long, and with the stock line lengths it did require some amount of traveler line to be just long enough... IIRC it was on downwind runs that often I would have to travel the jib in on the lazy side just a wee bit to trim things up just right on the working side...
