Re: E - Z Jacks

FWIW, I finally finished installing my lazy jacks according to this diagram;


It required 6 1" stainless steel rings, and 8 double braid splices. I used red line on the port side, and blue line on starboard to remind me of the rules of the road. This took me about 5 hours to finally set up correctly.

I was able to PERFECTLY flake my sail for the first time with this system, and it took about 3 min to flake. In short, I love it!
