Congratulations on your new boat. Our son and daughter-in-law own a Ranger 29, and are happily racing and cruising her, often with their 10 month old daughter.

The add-ons you speak of are common, and can help make boat handling easier and more convenient.

Tuning the rig is something that is easy to find info on.. a quick google gave me this list:

sailboat rig tuning - Google Search=

....just for starters. Many magazine articles will be available, search this forum for discussions on the subject too!

Best of luck with your new ride! and Welcome to Sailnet.
