|mast rake for 125|
|I am rigging a 125 for the first time, & have read Jamie Thomson's notes on rig concepts in the association notes. He states that a distance of 6140mm from the black line at the top of the mast, to the transom/ floor is a good starting point.|
Could someone tell me if this is a bare masted distance, or is it measured after the mainsail is set & tension is applied to the boom block ?
|Re: mast rake for 125|
We tend to run around 6180. This is with the rig tension on, and mainsail and boom on. Just lay the boat on its side rigged up and get a measure from the black band to floor/transom.
Jamie ran mid boom sheeting with a traveller and a softer rig setup. We run end boom sheeting but these should give you a starting point.
