Smile Re: O'Day 30 Swing Keel Rigging

Hello! This is my first post on sailnet so here I go? I have a 1980 Oday 30 win a CB. It too has the line over the cabin and a Kleet to tie off. It isn't very difficult to retract because as you have read it is a neutral balance. Maybe barnacles are the problem. The guy who dives on all the sailboats by me I. The Long Island Sound says that the barnacles can build up and almost make it impossible to retract. He said he manufactured a long angled rod to get up I side the keel and clear the unit. Good luck!
