I would definitely hire a professional rigger to tune the mast and rigging for you, and be present when he/she is doing it, and ask them what they are doing and why. Since this boat is new to you, but not new from the sounds of it, they can also do an inspection of the rigging. You'll have to ask someone else about a good resource in your area, as I know little about the So. Cal region, since I am allergic to earthquakes...

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
