Thanks - Re Rig - Only what I've read - I measure with trapeze from the tang near foil and line up about 50-100mm aft of rear beam (about 100 in strong wind, say 50 in medium/light)

Effectively I intend to have a fair bit of rake back in the mast in strong weather.

Yeah that's close enuff to being right, in terms of checking yur rig.

I go from centre of pin on foil tang, dependant on crew weight you should be running around the inspection port, perhaps a little in front of it.

I run ours there and have no trouble with nosing in any more, once you have rig rake correct you can then set yur rudder rake so as to have a mostly "neutral" helm response

although it should slowly start to bear up if you ditch the tiller.
