Re: Weather helm question
I was going to say, not forward enough, as I moved my rake forward a bit, and it helped get rid of a lot of weather helm.
If you have not done a true mast check to see that it is not centered side to side, for and aft, correct tightness of the shrouds and stays, that would be my first step overall. There is good thread in one of the sections. I also have a tuning guide from Ullman that might help, it is in a pdf booklet form I can email you. PM me or use my handle at hotmail will get me that way. I will need to email it to you, I do not believe I can do this via pms.
I am sure it was a good day to sail. Got blown around going across the narrows bridge, then when I went to bellevue up 405, back to seattle via 520, also got blow around a bit. Should have been a good day on the lake!
tried to make a link to the rig tuning thread, but sailnets lovely blinken use of certain words putting in a link to a page in there store, F's me up! It is a sticky in "gear and maintenance" section............
