If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat

I have a J/24. 1985 hull # 4098

Here is link to a website for tuning a J/24: J 24 Tuning Guide

I found that you should have the mast set back as far as it will go. The other most important things are that the mast is straight (it is very easy on a J/24 to have the tension on the shrouds set to make the mast bent the wrong way: to starboard or to port), the mast is slightly racked back, and the tension on the shrouds are equal. I have the outer shrouds set at about 25 and the inners between 15 and 20. When I bought the J, it came with a Loos gauge - a very good measuring tool to have.
90*Series*|*90*Series*|*Tension*Gauges*|*Loos*&*Co .*-*Cableware*Division

Looks like new ones are about $70, but I bet you could find a used one (or borrow one).

How are folks rigging the pole downhaul? I have mine going from the pole (of course) through an eye fastened to the deck (about 2-3' back from the Jenny Tack-which is also used to secure the bow lines) to a horn clean on the lower part of the mast. It seems to work okay, but it is slow in readjusting the pole height. Just curious what others are doing....
