|wildcard||16-18 kts today with gusts to 25, 100% jib and a single reef in the mainsail worked wonders! Realy wanted a second reef though. The main does not exactly fit the boat so when I order the new one it will have at least two reefs. Thanks for the help guys!|

One problem with older boats is you tighten the stays and the hull bends...
Crappy boats in a state of disrepair or poorly built boats, maybe. Old boats, NO.

I dont think Im quite to the point of screwing with the rigging yet but I will give it a look. BTW this hull has virtualy no bend. Both the broker and surveyor were shocked as to how stiff the boat was. Both came to me later on and said "if you ever want to sell, call me first".
Going out again today and I'll watch. BTW no, this isn't a roller, yet!

True, but from what he described, it sounds like a loose forestay, and I figured it was worth a shot. One problem with older boats is you tighten the stays and the hull bends, so I had recommended small adjustments.
