In Part 1 we got the mast upright so it was not leaning over to one side or the other.
Now let’s set the fore and aft rake and bend. But before we set off on that long and winding road, we need to make sure we really understand the theory of tuning. That's what this chapter is about.
Yeah, I know, we would all much rather I just wrote a step-by-step guide. I get that, particularly since it would be easier on me, too, but there are just too many variables to come at tuning that way.
(Part 1 was a teaser to get you hooked, before we got to the boring theory...I'm so devious.)
Rather, each of us must clearly understand how all the different factors interact before we start twiddling turnbuckles.
That said, once we deal with the theory, we will go on to a step-by-step guide. And, by combining that with this theory, each of us will be able to deal with pretty much any tuning situation. Surely better than monkey read, monkey tune?
Let's do it:
