Lazy Jacks

Hey All - Dennis Carlson and I got into a conversation re Lazy Jacks in the thread under roller furling. I have an old LJ system for my Scot that I have not been using, but may well install next season. Do any of you have rig plans for LJ's and do you have any comments on them?

Here's a link to a site with plans for DIY lazy jacks that claim to be easy to deploy and retract. Haven't tried them yet, but it's a clever design.


John- i use a LJ on my Scot- and it proves to be great - i have a sketch i can send on E-mail - if i had your adress or if could be attached to one of those forum messages.
loose this boom crutch - use a LJ-much better when dropping the main and keeps your boat free of main mess while mooring.
