Lazy jacks are a big help, even when they're just jury-rigged like mine.

The one part I've done permanently--mounting blocks to the mast--is 
something I'd do differently. Sometimes the main halyard catches on one 
of the blocks. I'm considering ways to mount blocks at the mounting 
point of the aft lower shrouds. On our low-aspect rigs, I don't think 
you need lazy jacks that go higher than the spreaders.
