Mast Rake Angle

In a general sense, the mizzen is normally more raked than the main mast but other than that there are no set rules for the specific mast rake of a ketch. The vary from the nearly vertical spars seen on many motor sailors to the sharly rakes masts popular on traditional Chesapeake Bay Ketches.
