I have recently purchased my 3rd trailable yacht a cattalina boomaroo 25 .this boat has a very heavy tiller while motoring and suffers from weather healm as it get over about 8 to 10kn at 15kn it wants to round up.I have dropped the fence at the pulpit to allow the genoa to pass through and increased mast bend ,i keep genoa sheeted on and depower the main it has improved but could be better . I am going to try moving the top pintle aft next to see if it helps. any tips appreciated regards gimson
