Ok...bear in mind I don't have my boat here to look at...but if I use the stock set up and only move the gromlet...let's say 1 inch forward, isn't that in effect going to move the entire jib aft 1 inch closer to the mast?
And that is what I need to do to get more lift out of the bow? Do I understand this correctly?
