RE: [yankee30] Re: Comparison of sailing qualities, MKI/MKII/MKIII
Since I was just working on my rudder… I did notice that it was not in perfect alignment with the keel… but as it was just a hair out of whack… and as there wasn’t much of a difference between the two tacks previous to the hauling out, I decided to let it go.
I am encouraged to hear your issue was dealt with by retuning the rig. I will continue to tweak mine… starting with using the jib halyard to check the uppers (I forgot about that technique) as Peter mentioned in an earlier e-mail.
I had the issue with unequal weather helm on port or starboard (can't recall which) when I bought my Yankee. It was fairly drastic, don't know how the PO's tolerated it (maybe that's why they sold the boat!)
Retuned the rig, and it disappeared.
