A Fix for the Lazy Jacks

It is project time. George and I have both been busy working on the list we generated when we were living on the boat. Yesterday's project was fixing the lazy jack lines. One of the plastic circles that is part of the system broke when we were offshore on our way home. George rigged a temporary fix that held up just fine but planned a more permanent fix. He found some "Shocks" on the defender website that should do the trick. They are small, aluminum sheaveless blocks that can have one line tied on the top portion and the other line run through the bottom portion. We believe that will hold up much better than the plastic rings. 
George asks if this picture makes his butt look big. Hahaha.

  1. Quick and easy way to fix a jack in a nut shell. Glad that you were able to complete that task which was on your list. Many doesn’t get a chance to do so.
