Am getting ready to do the same thing (as soon as Fall comes and temperatures fall below 100F). I am intending to use line and rings too (I will have lots of rings from dismantling the present system) but to attach the turning blocks to the spreaders a bit out from the mast (8 to 10 inches) to obviate lines slapping the mast when not in use. But am wondering whether I need 4 legs instead of 3 because the spreaders are a bit lower than optimal for lazy jack placement, or maybe there'll be too much fore-aft tension and not enough vertical to keep the lowered sail from falling out of the cradle. Any thoughts?
