Mike and Jim,
I am interested in Lazy Jacks with three lines on each side of the main which are only deployed when needed, i.e., only when lowering the mainsail. I see them as a pain in the butt when sailing and raising the main. Could either of you guys explain how yours are rigged and stowed?

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.
