Re: E - Z Jacks
Lazy jacks... we just made up a set with some small diameter amsteel, 4 antal anti-friction rings, 4 eye rings, and two ronstan composite jam cleats. I think the whole thing cost maybe $60 total, my time to do some splicing, and our foredeck guy one quick trip up the mast to luggage tag things to our check stay terminals. IMHO, making your own is a great DIY project. Splicing amsteel is very easy and a great intro to the sport in general if you have any interest in learning to do your own. For a 25' boat, it will be even cheaper.
Joe, you can use bungie cords to pull things toward the shrouds and away from the mast when they're not deployed.
