I'm looking for a better solution for the zippered sailcover with lazyjacks on my Lagoon
After I drop the sail, I lower the boom a little so I can reach up to the end of it just aft of the bimini
, where I reattach the zipper to the sailcover. After starting the zip, I then clip a light line to the zipper pull, lead the line to the mast
and pull it forwards to close the bag.
While this works OK if the sail has dropped neatly, sometimes I need to adjust the folds/lift up the zip before it will close. Getting onto the cabin
roof to do so isn't a problem, but I can only reach the forward half of the boom before needing to stand on the bimini
. Not a problem if in sheltered waters but I would not want to do so otherwise.
On a separate thread about flybridge cats Roetter said:
"We use lazy bags with cover-flaps. On the edges of the cover-flaps are lines with weighted ends. Throw the weighted ends over the top and tie the ends to the boom"
That sounds like a good solution to me and I have asked Roetter to have a look at this post and give more details.
Does anyone else have a good solution I could easily adapt?
