Re: Pearson 30 rig tuning

Rich,
All I can say is Wow! And thanks...you have provided exactly what I was looking for, relating to a P30. I narrowed it down to a CAL 31 and P30 after deciding we needed a bit more cabin headroom (wife is 5'10") for comfort, but wanted a older "racer/cruiser" - combination of wallet limitations and desire to "move" competitively. Must be related to reason I owned an MGB too (miss it!).
I guess my rookie, uninformed question is: How do I know the percentage? Do I need to buy a Loos guage, or is it a combination of friendly fellow sailors who help and learning by doing?
Thanks again for the info. I'm printing this one out and taking it to where I bought her in Rock Hall, where I had some of the more complicated modernizing done. I want to have it done right the first time, and watch, learn, and participate.
