Mast rake refers to the whole mast... I can't think of many situations where you'd want to bow the mast backwards like that. In fact, babystays are usually put on many boats to prevent that from happening.

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.
