Jeff, please provide comment on lazy jack systems....

Jeff, I have always appreciated your posts, even if you sometimes express strong and personal opinions. You did clarify your comment on the Lord Nelson boats (interesting), but for purposes of this post, I am also interested in why you dislike lazy jacks--I recently purchased a 30 foot boat, without lazy jacks, and have been encouraged by others to install them as I do alot of single handing. I do have concerns about them interfering with the mainsail--both when raising the sail, but more importantly, when I want to let the main out on a broad reach. Therefore, I have not bought them, though I do find my mainsail hard to flake and manage on my own. Any comments to help me decide?
thanks,
Frank.
