    Hi there, just saw a photo of your CS on a post about painting the centre board trunk. Your centre board trunk pictured was completely closed in and I couldn’t see any ropes anywhere....what magic is this?

    is it a weighted centre board? And how are you raising it?

    cheers,

       My c/b pennant runs along the port side of the c/b trunk.  It cleats on the underside of the middle seat.  The c/b is weighted.  The pennant is a 4:1 cascade system that runs along the trunk, making a u-turn at the forward end of the trunk.  If you’re interested in more detail, I’ll have this all apart in a couple of weeks.

      PAR passed away about a year ago.  I have such a system.  Let me see if I can find a photo.
