    Setting Rake on a J24

    I'm not sure I understand your question. The spreaders on my boat are fixed. With a distance of 155cm between tips. What we do do is set the mast pre bend "rake" at 2in at naught on the backstay. That has worked very well for us. I have never moved the spreader angle on the mast. And have...
