Today Alison Wood, a long-time employee at Port Townsend Sails, walks through deploying and using her Lazy Jack system aboard her boat S/V Juichi, a Downeast 32. She and her husband, Ron Hicken, have cruised extensively in the Pacific Northwest, including circumnavigating Vancouver Island and cruising Alaska. Alison built her custom system while apprenticing as a rigger, and Port Townsend Sails is happy to help streamline your sail set-up with this system.



We offer Port Townsend Rigging’s Lazy Jacks system to our customers, you can find details on their system here.
