Lazyjacks help when lowering but are a hindrence when raising

You should be able to pull the lazyjacks forward, out of the way, to allow raising slightly off dead into the wind.

Offcouse this can be done without an engine. Whether main or jib goes first depends a bit on the balance of the boat--my last liked main first, this likes jib first.
