Considering that the cost for all the material will be about $50, I can''t see how I can go wrong installing Lazy Jacks. ;^)

I don't see how you could go wrong for that money either. It's rare that one can do anything on a boat for that!
I'd love to make lazy jacks for my pocket cruiser, Lilliput. When she's in the water(not this season) I usually sail her alone. I've crewed on offshore deliveries and my experience with lazy jacks was positive. Can you steer me to the directions for them.
I've just discovered these forums, tho' I've belonged to SailNet for several years. Going to be a frequent visitor from now on!

Enjoy the short season.
