"not run jack lines down the outside of the boat "
Nothing wrong with running them outboard, EXCEPT that if you do this, you must remember only to use the one on the high side, and someone has to keep that side of the boat high while you're using it. Advantage, it keeps you on the high side, further away fro the water. Disadvantage, if someone tacks the boat, you're on the low side.
With line(s) midship, you may have a different set of problems but a least you're not near a rail.
