Mainsheet Controls - Enclosed Cockpit

I have attached a photo of the Admiral 40 cockpit. If you look carefully on top of the dash is a small winch to manage the Main Sheet. It is coming from a "turning block", I think that is the correct term, from the port side, travels across the top of the dash to the starboard side in front of the helm.

I am looking for other pictures and descriptions of other boats, mono or multi, that bring the mainsheet controls into an enclosed cockpit.

Thanks,

Pat

Re: Mainsheet controls - enclosed cockpit

Manta catamarans have all control lines (halyards, reefing lines, sheets, vang and preventer) leading to the cockpit through line organizers, clutches and an electric winch. There is a built in line bin along with a fabric bag to hold lines.

Attached are pictures.

Thank you, great photo, very helpful. Any chance a few photos of the traveler and sheet line(s) setup?

Re: Mainsheet Controls - Enclosed Cockpit

There is no traveller - just a single attachment point on the hardtop for the mainsheet. The mainsheet attaches to the end of the boom, through a attachment block, through the boom, down to a block at the base of the mast and to the organizer/clutch/winch. That would be the yellow line in the picture. The jib is self-tacking and has the jib sheet connected to a padeye on the cabin top, through a block on the jib clew, through a block on the other side of the cabin top and back to the organizer/clutch/winch.
