I take it that "rake" is relative to the waterline ?

That sounds like a simple plan. Just under 1' for our height of mast as a starting point. It is probably pretty close to that, but I will have to devise a way of measuring it properly.

Thanks All

Yes, the rake is relative to the waterline with the boat in normal fore and aft trim.

Look at the rig tuning procedure and methods on my website.

This isn't rocket science but I agree with Celestialsailor in that you shouldn't have touched a thing before sailing the boat with old rigging.

What's done is done. Right now you don't know where the balance point is. I trust you bought new 8" to 10" turnbuckles so you have some adjustment???

Thanks Rick

Had a look at your site, some good info.

We are 1/2 way through the re-rigging, did the cap shrouds today, will do the uppers tomorrow then it is the backstay and forestay. Lowers, innerforestay already done.

All the rig has been renewed apart from the tangs on the mast. We will dye penetrene them latter when we do some more work on the mast.
