My getaway as currently set up has more weather helm than I would like. I'm guessing that because I have the EZ LOC rudders the only way I'll be able to reduce the weather helm is to reduce the mast rake. The problem is that I like the way it points upwind as is. I'll lose that if I reduce the rake. Are they any other options?

What I did was to remove the screws from the upper gudgeon and put stainless washers between the transom and the gudgeon. This should help your problem

That's a good idea. About how much distance did you add on the upper gudgeon?
