I've heard people talk about tuning the boat (Mast, Rudders..etc)
I've also been told that the mast could be adjusted to the kind of sailing i do (tilt it forward or backwards?????)

I'm guessing adjusting the rudders to make sure that they are totally aligned? How?
I guess my question is what else could be done and how to do it?
Is it different from one boat to the other (ex. Wave vs H-16)?
Thanks guys!

There are many good posts about boat tuning. Rudders on the Wave should be no problem. Never heard of a problem. Mast rake is adjustable. Move the mast back in higher winds. The mainsheet blocks are the limiting factor. If you rake too far aft the main blocks will touch before you can sheet hard enough. Rake aft to help the boat point higher and keep the bows higher.
