Re: Centerboard cable/rope?

I switched to rope on my older O'day, and it held up well.

Attached with a narrow shackle from an O'day parts source. The only issue I had was the drum on the trunk that held the rope when the CB was up was sized for cable, and getting all that rope to fit was a challenge. Whereas the cable had some extra length the rope needed to be the exact length needed, with no extra. Your setup would most likely be different though.
