Centerboard and swing keel boats should have the board up while at the mooring. There have been more than a few cases of the board fracturing the centerboard trunk in sloppy seas from the back and forth motion. We had an O'day mariner sink in front of our house because the owner left the board down and it eventually fractured the trunk housing and sunk the boat..
