Thanks guys for your interest. The system I am interested in is the Dutchman Mainsail lowering system or similar. I have a 33' boat with a 3/4 rig so whilst not a huge boat the main can be a bit of a handful if short on numbers or experience. It's also really windy here. 25 knots is a normal summer afternoon breeze. So while the boat is not huge a boom flapping about could really hurt somebody. I don't like hurting crew, even inexperienced ones, so safety is a big concern.

It will be a week or so before I am in front of a computer again, but would love any advice as to whether lazy jacks or Dutchman is the way to go.
