Hey Charlie, gusts of 45 knots today at the lake! And building!

That's a bit much, especially for a C-27 and lee shores all around. Good call.

Bene - I just noticed your sig. You are killin' me here, dude! Hilarious!

And, alas, it is true. After some insanely tasty schnitzel on CD's boat, Helen and I started talking (well actually I did all the talking - she just stared blankly about 20 degrees past me and grunted) and one thing led to another...

Deaf/Dumb/Blind - sure. But that lady is one major supa freak in the dinghy!

How do I adjust the mast rake with a masthead rig? And what do I do about the spreader angle?

You need to tighten the smuler so that the twing is no longer at 65 degrees

Giu, do you think his ducks' knee at the masthead could be the cause of the rake. I will await your answer before I add to Smack's concern.

Smack we are talking a different fitting than your goose neck.
