How tight was your backstay? .... and how much was the forestay sagging off to leeward when you were 'above a beam reach'?

How 'old' is the mainsail, and does it have a 'boltrope'?

Critical question: what is the angle that the topside of the boom makes with the mast when you 'raise' the mainsail?
