Lazy Jack - how to use?
The only issue I''m aware of is raising the main. If you have battens, be careful the top one or two don''t get caught in the lazy jack''s lines on the way up.
Mine are elastic and easily removed from the boom and stowed on the mast. I leave them in the stowed position until the main is raised, then deploy them so that they''re ready for arrival. That''s when they really prove their worth - making sailhandling in flaking the main much easier.
I''ve had no issues at all while sailing.
