Looks pretty standard,,, in mast furling
dont like to much mast prebend and rake , i dont see to much in the picture but dont abuse the backstay if you dont have sweep back spreaders and get the rake with the caps shrouds if you have sweep back spreaders , 26 % in your caps sounds fine , keep in mind that with sweep back spreaders most of the prebend is done with the caps as well forestay tensión and the backtsay is just almost for the show, just kidding,
get a decent 20 stiff breeze and put the boat
hard in a tack , wacht the mast track from the bottom and see if the mast is straight , some slack in the leeward cap is normal... Cheers.
