This is arc to bow.

Now.. I have lines long enough to run aft.. I haven't yet.. now I just tie off and stow the jacks on the mast. I have to go forward because I haven't installed all the clutches I need yet...

I'm still tuning this design. It's not perfect. I think I'll get there though.

Another thing I did was to make sure that I used solid red and solid green 1/4 inch lines with padeyes spliced. It looks SOOOoooo Christmasy!! HOW COOL IS THAT!

Anyway...

I should note that .. the EZ jacks design (Arc aft) is easier to tie off on the mast because all the eyes end up in the same place... Slick.

the arc forward.. while usefull for holding the sail near the mast isn't as "neat"

Is EVERYTHING on a sailboat a tradeoff?????

the moral of the story is.. .your Jacks don't HAVE to be symmetrical...!!!!
TUne tune tune...
