Very neat Bill. Well done. 
Every SM should have one. I have read of a simple method to remove core material, needed whether through bolting or not. I did like your method. However when through bolting it is necessary so a solid epoxy area will stop compression as you tighten bolts. The method. As you did drill the bolt sized hole. Then bend a nail to give the length to remove the desired amount of core. Put it in the chuck of your cordless drill, enter it and spin. (carefully)

One of our projects while we were here in Annapolis was to install the cockpit control for the mizzen traveler.  A nice piece of work, if I say so myself.  Of course it should be, I copied the way Amel did it...

Hi Bill, I have seen one done very neatly. They mounted an Andersen  line tender the same as the main traveler has on the coach roof beside the cleat on the starboard side. He ran the lines around blocks in the same manner as the main traveler. It looked good (amel) and was easy to operate. I'd like one myself.

Has anyone rigged the mizzen traveler on a SM to be adjustable from the cockpit? If so... how?
