- Feb 8, 2013Do you mean topping lift? Lazy jacks are usually referred to in the
plural... You can use a topping lift with a regular sprit-boom. I Had one
on my Michalak Jewelbox, Jr. and it made hoisting sail, furling and
reefing it easier. I was gonna try experiment with lazy jacks hung from
the topping lift, but never got around to it...
You've pretty much gotta use a sail track on the mast to make reefing a
sprit-boomed leg o' mutton reasonably safe and easy. I hate sail track,
but it's necessary. <shrug>
I don't know what a "reefing hook" is.
