We took one of these out yesterday for a daysail and couldn't help but notice that the top third of the mast was dramatically curved or swept backwards to aft as though the backstay was on real hard when in fact it wasn't - the mast appears to be designed this way.
What is the reason for this? Improved pointing ability?
Iv just bought a Jeanneau36,havnt done a sail test yet, take over next week, any body have any hints on what to look for before I pay the buckaroo over. Ill be doing a hullsurvey and motor check next week, fingers crossed.
