Re: Removing Swing Keel Advice Sought

You don't just let a 400 lbs. centerboard drop. For one thing, you will probably need to prop it up somehow, to take the pressure off, just to remove the pivot pin/bolt. Then you want to lower it gently out of the slot, and have some way to move it once it is lowered.
