Re: Lazy Bag for sail cover?
Hi....I have owned a PSC 40 for 2 years now and one of my least favorite tasks is putting on the sailcover at the end of a sail. The boat does have lazy jacks and I have the original Ullman sails. Has anyone found a lazy bag that works well? Doyle has their sailpack but I am not interested in changing sails.
-Do you have a loose footed main?
-Does your boom have a track at the top?
If the answer is yes to both it's easy to make a lazy bag (or whatever you call it) that is not attached to the sail, it can use the track in the boom.
If the answer is no to one or both - you need a way to attach the lazy bag to the boom. I think that riveting a track or something to the boom (both sides if the sail is not loose footed) is the usual way to do it..
Any sail maker (and some canvas shops) should be able to make one for you.
There are even DIY kits available.
