Raking the Mast on a Hobie 16
"So you want to race that older model Hobie 16? One of the first tuning options you need to consider is mast rake, or tilting your mast towards the rear of the boat. Mast rake will move the center of effort aft towards the rudders, and help your boat point better. Since most of the time on the race course is beating upwind, that's where you want the boat to peform it's best.
