Hi all,

I asked this a bit back in an obscure thread, so it probably wasn't seen.

What is the best way to see when our boats are sitting on their lines? I believe my painted waterline has been moved up and I'm not confident in looking at that. I've been struggling with weather helm, so I suspect my mast is raked too much. However, I'm not sure how to determine when the boat is "level" while adjusting my rigging.

Can I tell by looking at tang/water relationships forward and aft?

Thanks for your help!
Aaron N.
