Buccaneer 18 centerboard ?

Hi all,

I searched the forums, but didn't find a thread for this problem.

I put my Buc 18 in the water yesterday for the first time. I thought the center board would just plop down. It doesn't. It floats right back up. Is it supposed to be tied down? I guess I could rig something to keep it down.

It appears to be made of Fiberglass. It might be plywood coated with epoxy. It's a 1975 mode.

Thanks for any advice.
