Just to be agreeable, I agree, you're both asses full of crap..
There have been a few good articles in the sailing magazines about the benefits of a tuned rig. A boat's performance will generally improve when the rig is properly tuned. It is also less likely to lose its mast if the rig is properly tuned. Considering what the replacement costs and dangers are if you drop a mast... spending some time to tune the rig is a cheap investment in the boat's performance and safety.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
