Re: Advice for my Tartan 31

awesome, didn't think that would work.

Question, The lazy jacks were extremely tight, as you can see in the picture. This didn't allow for the boom to come down and tighten the mainsail. There was also no room for adjustment. I had the same type of line, and simply extended it so I can adjust my boom to tighten the sail. The entire boom was being held up by the lazy jacks. I don't understand how the PO sailed it.
Is the doyle stack pack designed to use lazy jacks? Does anyone use it without them?

Now all is great. This is the only picture I have, Ill get more soon.
