Do you mean traveller or main sheet? I have an O'Day 40 which is essentially a Jeanneau
Sun Fizz. I have crossed the Atlantic in her and am totally in love with my boat. The main sheet is led to the cockpit, (you need to leave the wheel to attend to it), but I sail singlehanded and seldom steer, my windvane
does that. The traveller is over the cabin
top and is adjusted from either side deck
. My main issue on an ocean crossing
is chafe of the rollerfurler halyard
at the masthead, in spite of having one of those halyard
leaders below the masthead sheave. I have now stitched on a thin leather covering to protect that spot. I have only 2 reef points on the main and am intending having a third, slab reef point fitted with a bull hook at the gooseneck and a simple tackle at the clew.
