The loos guage is fine

You will break the boat before you dont get slack on the leward side

I dont know your wire size BUT on the J24 upper 30 is freaking tight and you still get slack

The headstay on this mast should be able to get on the silly lose side in light winds and get tighter as wind speed goes up using the backstay adjustment

The tuning guides are USELESS unless you own that SAIL as they set the mast up for how it was CUT with the current correct J24 being settings being compleatly different than the old ones

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat
