Question - weather helm

Do you think your rigging / mast is correctly set up?

I know after we made adjustments to the mast, as well as being sure my kick up rudder is completely down, most of that excessive weather helm disappeared. Before it was properly adjusted, I thought I was going to snap my tiller. I'm 6'5" & 285 lbs and the tiller making some ugly sounds. I can easily use one hand now but it still has a little weather helm.
