Re: Weather helm and Weight

Don't know about Bendy-Toes, but for some boats weather helm can be greatly reduced (and pointing much improved) by raking the mast farther aft. I know this seems counter-intuitive (shouldn't more rake move the center of effort aft - thus causing even more weather helm?), but it works. And again, I cannot testify about any boat but mine.
