Re: pics of sail covers made for lazy jack systems?

jajaja well it is a small boat so of that happens simply sail into the wind and losen the piggy tail

I quite like them, I think I have had 3 or 4 boats that had them, usually on smaller boats under 30ft...

in fact I still do a version of this by tying the end of the boom off to the backstay so I have less moevement in the wind or when a big gust comes in etc...so the boom stays fixed

a lose boom equals a lose cover a lose cover can go wayward and stuff can come off, lose etc..

I like a tight ship when stowed...no lose ends if you will

Islander 36 now FOR SALE!
