    Hunter 37 cutter Mast Rake and Prebend

    Hunter 37 cutter owners, how much prebend and rake do you run....Yes its a very stiff mast :) Got an older mainsail, looks very full, but mast is straight, and no prebend, the mast is all the way forward at the collar, so planning on raking back, then inducing some prebend with lower...
