sailaway21 Illustrated Sail & Rig Tuning by Ivar Dedekam is a good reference and small enough in size to easily carry with you. It's published in paperback by Fernhurst Books which can be located at .

You might also be interested in the post of one of sailnet's inveterate rig-tweakers here:

edit: for some reason I'm having trouble copying the link-just look under Gear & Maintenance for the Sticky on "Adjusting your Rig" by Giulietta.

Tuning rig

Got a buddy with a Caliber 40 who used this book; Sail and Rig Tuning, by Ivar Dekkar or Dedkar...or something like that. He reported it as an excellent reference, and when he was done he'd all but removed the serious weather helm he was experiencing

tuning rig

Hey all, does anyone have any good info on tuning your rig? We're stepping the mast on our boat in a couple weeks after having it delivered to the PNW. We're going to do the rigging/tuning ourselves. We marked all the turnbuckle positions prior to pulling the mast so if nothing else, we should be able to get it back to where it was at before pulling the stick. But I'd like to actively tune the rig.

Do you all use a Loos gauge to tune the rig? Or just eyeball it?
