Contact your local sailmaker
and ask her/him if they make boat calls. In fact, ask if they can spend an afternoon with you at your boat, measuring things and helping you figure out what sails
you have, need, and how to use 'em. This will likely cost you some money
(and will certainly cost you money
in the future as you try to do everything they suggest) but you will learn a lot about how to get the most out of your boat. You'll enjoy sailing more if you understand more, too.
