how high well does my boat point?

Hello everyone;

I own a 1964 Columbia 26 and for the life of me can't figure out how to make her point any higher. She has a two-year-old dacron main and I'm going to have her rigging tuned.

It doesn't seem to make much difference whether she has heavy weather helm or if the sail plan is nicely balanced (although she's always happier in the SF Bay's summer wind). I'm buying a furling jib in the hopes that making quicker adjustments to conditions will help.

So, I'm wondering if she's just one of those older boats that just doesn't point?


Thanks and happy holidays,

Michael
