Lazyjacks Configuration

My boat had lazyjacks installed previously,but no longer .Small padeyes are still on mast and boom,but nothing else.Am vaguely familiar with rope setup but not sure.I think rope loops under boom fore and aft and is looped through rigging eye half way up to mast padeye,then a single rope up to fixed attachment on one side and to adjustable halyard on other.Does this sound right?Can adjustable rope just slide freely through eye without chafing?

Lazyjacks

GordMay: Here you listed three links for Lazyjacks. I found another Schaefer. Of these, which would you recommend? We have read information on all of them. I personal don't care for the MackPack as for the permanent sail cover being left on the boom. Thank you for any information in advance. Diane

My lazyjacks were not part of my topping lift. I really never had to do anything with the topping lift once set. (no boom cradle) I just used black small diameter 3 strand nylon for the lazyjacks.

I used the Lazy Jack layout on the graph paper design here: Lazy Jacks Used 1/4 inch braided dacron, around 2 hundred feet, and brass rings for the junction points of lines. Mounted two cheek blocks about midway between mast head and spreaders on our single spreader boat. Lazy Jacks are pulled forward to the mast excep when actually in use.

I have my lazyjacks not running from the boom to the mast, but to the lower spreaders at a point approx. 30cm away from the mast - this helps to open the width of the vertical slot and helps to avert the mainsail battens being caught on the lazyjacks.
