One thing to note. When I had my 'improv' lazy jack installed, it worked ok for stock dacron sail I had on my Catalina. However, once I put on my fully battened X-10 Kevlar, the battens would catch onto the lazy jack lines (going up or down) and became a major source of contention for me as I typically sail solo (and the point of the lazy jack rig was so it would bide me time and not force me to have to leave the helm to deal with it). So, if devising - have a quick disconnect system so that you can get rid of the lazy jack lines from the boom (especially handy if raising the main)...

just my experience
