Question mast rake

paulk -
Do you mean you want more slope of the mast towards the bow of his boat? I was under the impression that rake meant toward the stern. I am re-rigging a 37 ft. cruiser and need to find the best mast angle. It has much too much weather helm to the tiller, which wears out the helmsman on an afternoon cruise. Any suggestions?
