Re: Lazy Jacks: Lov'em or Leave'em?

On my previous boat, I sailed 50,000 miles with a Dutchman system that I loved. My current boat has lazy jacks that I'm not fond of. If you have a choice, go with the Dutchman.

Re: Lazy Jacks: Lov'em or Leave'em?

I built my own, modeled on the EZ-Jax system. I used red line for port, and green for starboard. For me the key attribute is that I can stow them when not in use. I LOVE them!

Re: Lazy Jacks: Lov'em or Leave'em?

Does anyone use them on sails with partial battens? I see all the vids show how nicely full battens flake with lazy jacks but none with partial battens.

2 full battens and 2 partial battens. Works great. But I have a life raft on deck, so it's very easy for me to step up and pull the sails back a bit before I zip the cover closed.
