Happy Birthday! Its good to see people sailing. I have a "new to me" Helms 25 on the trailer and still have snow in the drive, so another month for me. I agree with the mast rake and rigging info. Do you have a centerboard? I can really adjust or eliminate the amount of weather helm by the amount my centerboard is down. 5 cranks down on the centerboard winch and weather helm is almost neutral in 8 to 10 knots of wind. But every boat is designed differently.
