Mainsheet on O-day 19

Hi I have a 1970 O-Day mariner 19

has anyone changed it to another configuration, to get it out of the way

thanks

Re: Mainsheet on O-day 19

I have seen quite a few with mid-boom sheeting with a spring loaded swivel block at the aft end of the center board trunk. I have also seen at least one with a traveler across the seats but that may be awkward to move around. I'm moving mine to the aft end of the trunk. It's currently at the transom.
I believe Nate with Orion has mid boom sheeting you could email and see if he has any ideas.
O'Day Mariner #1922 ORION

Or Stuart Marine in Rockport Maine, should be able to help.

Mainsheet on O-day 19

Uncivilized, is there a concern about spreading the load on the boom when moving to mid boom sheeting on a mariner 19?

I don't know the boat or it's rig, but the question that you posed sure did cross my mind. I'd say that in general booms on smaller boats are built proportionally stronger than on bigger boats. But without looking at this one firsthand it'd be tough to say. Though the risk of doing any damage to it is less if one attaches blocks for the sheet to a boom with webbing strops or line strops, vs. drilling through them & mounting bails. I can't see much reasons for bails any more, & would have some webbing strops sewn up as they spread load the best.

I don't think it would be an issue on the Mariner. I believe the spars were made by Dwyer mast in CT I have found them helpful in the past you could email and ask.
