need to raise the Jib.

If you do any sailing in crowded waters I would strongly recomend a tack pennant to raise the sail off of the deck. The increased visibility forward far out weighs the increased healing you will encounter. Unless you are racing, its always wise to raise the jib/genoa of of the deck. This will solve your problem of the sail resting on the lifelines, and keep your sails cleaner longer.
