Re: Pearson 30 rig tuning

@ SVCarolena and Rich H:
A bit of confusion here. Some (most) say have a little bend in the mast, but Bill Shaw says straight mast, and he mentions the 10M and P30. Since he designed the boat, I've got to give him the nod, you have bend or straght? And, aside from bend being the norm, what about for a P30?
The guy at the boatyard said most masts are tuned to have a little aft bend toward the stern. Am I just getting all the facts confused with too much data, or missing the point completely?
Best Regards, Rob
