WindRider 17 Lazy Jack

  • Allows you to hold the boom up while droping the main sail
  • Provides some amount of cradle for the main sail to rest in

Consists of:

  • 3 plastic fairleads (with rivets) that attach to the bottom of the WR17 boom
  • 2 stainless steel rings
  • 4 stainless steel snaphooks
  • 2 (1/4") 11' lines
  • 1 (1/4") 28' line

Lazy Jack Installation and Assembly Instructions

  1. Using a measuring tape find the one quarter, half and three quarters points of the boom
  2. Mark these points on the bottom side of the boom. This is where the fairleads will be installed
  3. The fairleads should be installed so that their eyes open toward port and starboard sides
  4. Using each fairlead as a guide, tap and pre-drill the holes to install with the included rivets
  5. Next, tie the 4 stainless steel snap-hooks to the ends of the 11' lines
  6. Connect one end of each of the 11' lines to the bow shackle on the mast hound
  7. At the other end of each 11' line connect the snap-hook to its own stainless steel ring

(*For the next part the mast will need to be raised with the boom connected and sail raised to get the correct spacing*)

  1. Tie one end of the 28' line to stainless steel ring "A" (Port)
  2. Run the line through the front fairlead under the boom and back up to the opposite stainless steel ring "B" (Starboard)
  3. From ring "B" run the line down through the middle fairlead and back to ring "A"
  4. Next, run the line down through the rear fairlead under the boom
  5. Finally, tie off the end of the line to stainless ring "B"
