Just curious - why would you want the lazy jacks in place as soon as a possible? I leave them at the mast until I lower the sail.

heave-to works good for me to thak sails down, and i expect it will work just as good for putting them up if you start with the jib.

Would someone who has lazy-jacks that move forward post pictures. The ones I've seen have been fixed and I would like to see how they are setup.
Thanks.

The lazy jacks are attached to cleats on either side of the mast.

C&C 30 MK1 w/ attached lazyjacks
I'm in a mooring field with lots of current that can affect how I come off/get on my mooring. Sometimes motoring is simply a safer approach.

Raise the main
Drop the mooring
sail off the mooring till I get a bit of speed
Unfurl the jib and trim... weeeeee!

Motor off the mooring
Unfurl the jib
Shut down the engine
Come as high as possible (pinch)
Raise the main... woooohoooo!

Head up as high as possible (pinch)
Drop the main, tidy up
furl the jib
start the engine

Furl the jib before heading to the mooring
Sail to the mooring on the main
Grab the mooring, get it over a cleat
Drop the main
Open beer/Gosslings
tidy up

(Having the jib unfurled and trimming it as much as possible allows the main to come/down easily)

You should be able to raise and lower the main while on the ball. Just do not harden the sheet.

Are there cleats on the boom or special attachments?
Do they bang around a lot under sail?


Wait I looked closer and it looks like they remain attached to the boom but if that is the case is some portion of them stretchy or is there a block with extra line somehow?

OK I looked again.
You have a standard lazyjack setup with permanent attachment to the boom the very top line instead of being terminated 1/3rd from the top of the mast has a block at that point so the tail end can come down the mast and terminate in a cleat reachable from deck.
Did I get that right?
