Topic: Mainsheet Traveler Troubles
As I was going through the rigging on my Contessa, I noticed that there seems to be a problem with my mainsheet traveler. As you can see from the attached photo, I have a car but only one (moveable and locking) stop block.
I'm not really sure how this traveler arrangement is supposed to work, but it appears that you hold the traveler car in a specific place by moving (a pair?) of stop blocks as close as possible to the car wherever you have it positioned.
Perhaps I am also missing some sort of stops at each end of the traveler that keep the moveable stop blocks from sliding off and going overboard.
Does anyone recognize this traveler arrangement I have and can help me figure out what I'm missing?
