I’m looking at  a new traveller setup for Temerity.  Right now there is a 3:1 purchase with remote cleats on the coamings similar to the middle view  above.    Even sitting directly above it, it is pretty hard for me to haul it up under load, and impossible for some of the lighter crew.   I will probably go with a 4:1 to  reduce the load, and am also considering a windward sheeting setup, though there are some tradeoffs with a system like that, starting with the $600 price tag.    I’ve also looked at a lot of different schemes for mainsheets, but can’t think of anything I like better than my present setup (6:1 with 24:1 fine tune).
