Hi all,
Well, I moved it forward quite a way, to about 5- 6 inches rake. We still have a little weather helm as desired, but I think it is much better. I moved about 4 inches of stay length to the back in the form of two extra toggles, so this equated to about 12-14 in of masthead movement.

The boat is better balanced and I can carry more main,
We were a bit stern down, and this has improved, and
I can stand easily under the boom now.

Muey bueno!

Cheers,
John
