Boom Vang Kits
A must on any boat, large or small, boom vangs are primarily used to control the leech of the mainsail by restraining the boom from rising when sailing. This helps eliminate excessive sail twist which when left uncontrolled can make your boat unstable with an increased tendency to roll in waves.

Investment cast snap shackles offer quick and exacting placement of the tackle allowing the system to be moved to the toe rail for use as a preventer. This arrangement ”prevents” the boom from swinging back into the boat in light air and also helps avoid accidental gybes in heavy air.

Lazy Jacks
Lazy Jacks are designed to control the mainsail when reefing or dousing. They easily tame today's Full Batten Mainsails and work well with more conventional sails. Schaefer's Lazy Jacks ”funnel” the sail down to the boom and retain it, keeping you safe in the cockpit to properly secure the sail when you are moored. Our design allows for the use of an existing sailcover without the need for extensive modifications. The use of thimbled eye straps attached to the bottom of your boom keep the hardware away from the cover and enable you to tuck your sailcover under the lazy jack control lines.
Reefing - Jiffy Reef Slides/Blocks
Jiffy Reefing allows an entire “slab” to be quickly removed from the mainsail to reduce sail area and power in ”heavy–air” conditions. With the mainsheet and main halyard eased, Jiffy Reefing lines pull the aft reef grommet tight to the boom. A separate reef line attached to the forward reef grommet is then tightened, pulling the sail tight and flat at the gooseneck. The halyard is then tightened and the mainsheet is trimmed with a new reduced sail area. It is also possible to create a single line system with Schaefer's unique block selection. Contact Schaefer for more options.
Reefing/Cunningham Hooks
Formed Stainless Steel with high strength welded eyes and long stems for secure insertion into sail grommet.
Mainsail Prefeeders
Compatible with all systems, our Pre-Feeder is helpful if you intend to change sails or sail shorthanded. Aligns your luff tape before it enters into the Stainless Steel feeder on the extrusion foil. Welded bail allows for shock cord or line attachment to keep the feeder close to the headstay.
