Hi everybody :)

Launch season is fast approaching and I've got a short list of chores on The Walrus before the splash. I'm wondering if anyone sailing a PY-23 has Lazy Jacks set up on their rig?

I solo sail a lot. Dousing the main is not a problem. Going head to wind with the AutoHelm holding course, but sometimes there's enough chop it's difficult going forward to flake the main.

Anybody using LazyJacks? More lines to deal with.

I don't have them on my own boat, but the boat I race on Wednesday nights does.  They work fairly well.  Would be nice while single handing.  Still need to go forward to rig them, but it's a quick trip.

Yeah Brian those look like just the thing. What kind of line did you use? Is any of that shock-cord? (Bungee)

Lazy jacks have been on my list for a long time. When I'm alone on the boat I just quickly secure the sails, and stow them away properly once tied to the dock. I have some netting to go around the bow to help keep the jib out of the water. Store bought lazy jacks seem to be over priced, so I'll eventually make my own.
