Re: E - Z Jacks

I made a system similar to Joe and love them. I have been using them for 3 seasons. I made mine for $100 in material and a day of labor to fabricate and install. I consider them indespensible when single handing or when I have a full boat. I ended up make tapered eye splices for the connections to the stainless rings. They look great. For the ends of the lines on the boom, I installed pad eyes to the boom and run the lines through them and adjust the line lengths with figure eight knots. They are also stowable so I do not have them deployed when raising the sail and I do not need to modify my sail cover.
