Here is a quick rundown of our Lazy Jack System and materials list.
*You’ll also need machine screws to secure the eye straps and two blocks to mount on the mast or spreaders
Our boom is 13 feet long and mast is approximately 45 feet above deck. This configurations works quite well keeping our sail on the boom while dropping and reefing.
We have future plans of building and installing a sail pack, at which time, the dyneema will be integrated into it and the overall system will stay the same.

It’s been a few months since we installed our Dyneema Lazy Jacks. We’ve raised and dropped our main sail many times since then. Our new system works SO much better than the old nylon rope we had from a hardware store. Well worth the $100 we spent on all the ropes and bits. Now for a Stack Pack.
