Lazy jack help

Post by jmrwd3 » Mon Jun 22, 2020 9:41 am

Hello! I am the excited new owner of a 26S, and it came with lazy jacks which I just can’t figure out. The boom had a block arrangement with plastic clips. I circled the clips in yellow and adjustable blocks in red. There are two additional lines, about 97” long. I thought they might connect to the mast just above the spreaders, but I cannot figure that out. Any ideas are greatly appreciated!

Welcome to the group. I don’t blame you for being excited as a new owner. I was planning to add lazy jacks to Winsome as per pic from this thread. Am finding I’m doing ok without at this time. I suggest getting out there and sail for now. Can sort them out later.

Thanks for the reply! This looks like it will work! Sorry for the late reply, just got back from working on a ship - time to enjoy the boat!
