[Public-List] Lazy Jacks

   For my lazy Jacks, I go out on the spreader a bit for the upper
   blocks.  I also lead them down to the deck on the forward side of the
   mast so I can slack them down and secure them to the boom when the
   cover is on or raising the sail.

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.
