I have just installed a new Harken
mainsheet traveller with a 3:1 end boom purchase
system. I was intending to run the sheet through a standing block, then a cheek block to one of my Barlow 28 non self tailing

. I have a couple of old Lewmar
25's kicking around and I'm wondering if one of them would be adequate for use in this instance.
is 367 square feet, on a Corbin 39.
Any thoughts? My old mainsheet system was only a 4:1 so this setup would probably still be better. I'd just hate to drill a bunch of holes in my brand new deck
