Tim,

I'll try and visit my boat this lunchtime and I'll take some photos for
you.  I replaced the original traveller track with a harken track and car
(making sure I bought the compatible both hole pitch rather than the new
one - I bought it from Mauri Pro and it fitted the old holes perfectly)

I have a double sheet system with a trim setup - you'll see in the photos.
 This allows me to flatten the main really hard - very important in sailing
San Francisco Bay.
