mast rake clarification
I'm a little confused about measuring mast rake. Correct me if I'm wrong. The mast rake is measured first with rearward pressure on the mast and the jib halyard essentially unhooked. The proper length is set by adjusting the forestay length. Then 3-5 inches of play is measured by pushing forward on the mast- adjusting the chainplates for the proper amount of play. Is this correct?
