Thanks for the info. I really don't want to try to slack all my rigging and start from scratch. I'm not sure I'm strong enough to get it back tight again, and I also don't trust that the mast won't fall over while it's loose. I need to find a professional. I haven't been able to find Olivier's rig tuning guide, unless it's the one I linked in my first post, but I don't think it is.
I did end up tightening my forestay to no avail. In a windy rain storm late at night. It changed the frequency of the pumping, but didn't eliminate it. I'm not convinced it was necessary or even a good idea, since the mast did have a slight bend forward before I started tightening the backstay. Also, now the forestay turnbuckle only has about one more turn of adjustment left in it before it bottoms out.
