lazy jacks

Lazy jacks are a to each his own kind of thing. As someone who has sailed for over 40 years (time flies when you are having fun) and who single hands my 38 footer a lot, I find lazy jacks a real pain in the butt and a bit of a safety hazard for a singlehander. If I bought a boat with lazyjacks they would be first thing that I would remove. (Come to think of it I did buy a boat with lazyjacks and they were the first things that were not reinstalled when we stepped the mast). Then again I would not own a Lord Nelson on a bet either, so, what the heck, to each his own.
