This brings up the question, why are newbies coming onto the forum to ask these questions.  I am always asking someone about these, myself.  If only there was a way for a computer game to put out some form of document that explained this stuff!

I rather have devs changing stuff than devs writing and changing a documentation for users in early development.

I think wiki will be reworked when NA changes UI so just wait a bit more

When you need more time to turn the rudder it's a penalty because it takes more time for the ship to start turning. If something reduce turn time of rudder then the ship starts to turn faster.

Same goes for cannon. Less crew -percentage means more crew for other tasks. But the probability to lose cannons is increased by 20%.

Overall read the tooltips carefully. And think about it. Like sailing crew required. Is it better to have more sailing crew or less? Less would mean the free guys could run the cannons. Then look at the percentage + mean values increase. - mean values decrease. In your example you require less crew so it's a benefit.

@Pada

Sail Rising Speed: +20%  vs Sail Rising Time +20% 

Speed = Bonus to speed means good. Faster raising speed.

Time = Bonus to Time means bad. Longer time is take to raise sails. 

Am I wrong here?

Speed +20% means I am raising sails +20% faster.

Correct increase of speed good. Increase of time bad.

"penalties" should be marked with red colour, "positives" with green and neutral stay normal.

Obviously.

Also, answered  new player's question here:

The UI changes are coming and the color codes are nice suggestion when they include color blind mode as well.

Also, as we have now, there's a lot of confusion due to misreading.

Example is yards. Some items say speed, others say time. Pay attention.

Speed +20% is not the same as Time -20%. Both are benefic though.

Do not look only to the numbers, look to the decribed effect - in the example - TIME. If it is positive it increases time by X amount. If it is Speed, it increases speed by X amount.
