Lazy Jack Stack Pack

Has any body made their own Stack pack or can direct me to a site that has a user built system? We have some ideas but interested to hear from others who have been through the process. We would also love to know where do you purchase the battons for the sides of the stack pack?

Cheers

Some good ideas

Thanks Chuck and delmarrey.
Got some great ideas from both threads.
We are going to use the PVC pipe as mentioned in those threads.
Also, to keep the best sail shape and filling, we are going to make the lazy jack attachment points at the top of the stack pack, with snap shackels.Once the sail is up, the L J will be bought back to the mast and then we can roll both sides down to the side of the boom and held by bungy cord under the foot of the sail and around boom.
What do you think?
Cheers
