We have just purchased an RL28, and the mast is severely swept back. When sheeted on hard, the boom is almost touching the cabin roof at the stern end. Is this normal ?? I would have expected the boom to be almost parallell to the cabin roof while sailing. Is the severe backward rake of the mast causing the boom to droop so much ?? Any suggestions for the best self furler brand, need one to allow setting of all size of headsail.
Steve, thanks for answer on the rake. On the furler, I should have been more specific......I meant to ask the recommendation for a furler that can set the one big sail fitted to any size by partailly furling to any setting, and sailing. Guessed it would be fitted with the biggest genoa possible for the boat, and furling it to suit wind conditions. Does recommnedation stay the same ??
