Hi White Falcon,
I have attached a couple of photos. My first attempt to move the hound was 12inches above the original. When I tried it I discovered that my furler does not have much length adjustment (1/2 inch with bolt and nut) that was not enough to adjust to correct tension so I went 6 inches higher (total 18 inches) and installed a turn buckle at top of furler to adjust things. It is a pain at the top and it took several attempts with mast raising to get it right. Adjustment was mast rake 5 inches to stern. The turnbuckle could not go at the bottom as it would raise the sail too high.
