Re: pics of sail covers made for lazy jack systems?

I like the Doyle StackPak cover, but it's part of the sail. The way it works, there is a membrane from the sail to the cover, that with the sail raised, pulls the cover tight to the sail. It also allows me to pull the lazy jacks forward for raising the sail. The lazy jacks terminate at the top of the cover, rather than on the boom.

Not sure what boat this is on, but it gives you an idea of it.

Re: pics of sail covers made for lazy jack systems?

Hey,

Here is mine.


I have found out it was made by Sail care and is called the Sail Cradle or something like that.

Sail Care Lazy Jack Kits - Lazy Jacks - Mainsail Handling - Sailboat Hardware & Rigging - Downwind Marine


The kit states that you don't HAVE to modify the sail cover, but my O'day came a sail cover that had been modified (as mentioned, just some slits with zippers) and I find it easier to use that way.

I found it affordable, easy to use, and works well. My O'day came with it and I like it so much I have purchased one for my C&C.

Re: pics of sail covers made for lazy jack systems?

The sail cover wraps around the sail and under the boom....lacings are under the boom. Lazy jacks are slacked while the cover goes on and then tightened.
Simple, but it does take a few minutes to get it on and off and when it's off you need a place to stow it. A friend keeps telling me to get a stack pack, but I like being able to get the sail cover completely off the boom.

Re: pics of sail covers made for lazy jack systems?

Christian,

I watched the sail maker spec the cover out. With the sail on he took girth measurements every two feet or so from the head of the furled sail to the end of the boom. From those measurements, the sail loft could make a paper pattern and from that the cover itself. It was very simple. If I was to do it again I'd have them leave a bit more slack -- make it a tad baggier.

Fastening the cover is done with a zipper on the leading edge of the mast (the cover goes all the way around the mast) with webbing and plastic snaps to reinforce the top edge, and lacings under the boom.

Re: pics of sail covers made for lazy jack systems?

thanks man!

main is going on on monday so I can take more exact measurements...

the one thing I was having doubts on was the use of zippers or not since the big white ones used on canvas cant be had here...just the smaller white ones

I thought about grommets and just lace it up as a compromise and for the bottom use something like tie downs for the sails but sewn in every 8 inches or so

anywho

more pics welcome!

Re: pics of sail covers made for lazy jack systems?

If using a zip that might not have great UV resistance; include a flap on one side with a few Velcro spots to flap over the zip.
