Here's the photo's I promised. Only a day late.
Check out the LED spreader lights we installed. They draw 1 amp each. The customer is really happy. Says they light up the deck like daylight. (his words) I haven't seen them at night.

Those maybe the most expensive lazyjacks ever installed, once you factor in the cost of renting that big crane.

But I am glad to see you work safe, knotty.

Actually, we used that crane for a long time when we were on that side of the creek. We have since moved and bought our own. It's even bigger.

All the one shown does anymore is screw up my pictures and act like a big windvane. It's gonna rust away and fall down someday.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Our lazy jacks are made to be clipped to the mast when not in use. On our way in before dropping the sail it is and easy to procedure to go to the mast and clip them under 3 slips on both sides of the boom.

No special sail cover or worry about the battens hanging up in them when raising the sail this way.
