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

Yes, for sure that was from personal experience. When you forget (as we all do) just head to wind and unhook it from the boom. I also sail Cal20s, which have the pig tails. They work really great for keeping the boom from dropping on your head when the sails are down (these boats don't have lazy jacks), but dang, just don't forget to undo it when you shove off. It'll keep you close hauled and that's not a pretty feeling when you need to let the sail out....
