My recently acquired Hoare boat, 2180, has, even with the shoud pins on the top holes, about 23" (585mm) of static mast rake measured at the gooseneck. Is this much rake typical? New to the class and gratefull for advice.

Welcome to the class Alan. I have dug out a Mike Mac tuning guide and he recommends approx 400mm rake measured at gooseneck. I measure mine at transom and don't have a value for goosneck.

Hope this helps

Old tuning guide but a good starting point 
- you will need to establish if you have a tall or short mast (4" difference)
