C270 Main Sail "stack Pack", Quick Cover", "lazy Bag" Install

Does anyone have experience in installing a mainsail, boom mounted, mainsail cover which mounts on the boom and to which lazy jacks are attached, allowing you to drop the sail straight into the bag, which then is zippered up on the top? They are sold by the various names in the title above by various companies. Thanks. I can be emailed directly at randy22556@aol.com Randy

The StackPack is an integrated cover and sail, and the lazy jacks attach to hooks on the cover. If you're looking at buying one, I feel it's the best deal on the market, from my experience with mine. The installation was not a problem as the Doyle Loft here installed it. The only real mechanical part of it though is putting a couple of blocks, one on each side of the mast near the spreaders, and then a couple of eye hooks about halfway between there and the boom.
