Lazybag installation

anyone know the best way to install a lazybag with a full slug boom slide without removing the mainsail also with a full length boom slug/slide?

Here are the instructions>> http://www.neilprydesails.com/pdfs/L...stallation.pdf

I would imagine one would alternate the slugs.

Re: Lazybag installation

Thank you very much. I have seen this manual, but it does not speak to my needs. They have slug slides on the mainsail only at the foot and tail of the sail. This allows the alternating method and installing the lazybag on one side of the boom and sliding it over to center it.

My mainsail has a continuous slug slide as does the new lazybag. Im going to try hoisting the main, releasing the outhaul and trying to wedge the lazybag slug under the mainsail slug on inside the boom. Hopefully Ill be able to wiggle it along inside the boom under the mainsail slug.

Re: Lazybag installation

Unless you have a loose footed main you can't install a lazy bag that also has a full boom attachment. Have your main converted to loose footed. The lazy bag must be attached the full length of the boom.

Re: Lazybag installation

So, I take the main to the sail maker and cut it for loose footed? There seems to be room for both full boom attachments inside the boom. Not doable?

Thanks for your advice,

I took the main guide out of the boom and left it loose footed. Easy install of the lazybag after that. Thanks
