The main issue left is where exactly on the centerboard the cable attaches. I think right near the bottom of the centerboard cavity. Any input on that?
The cable attach point is a compromise in every sense. Too close to the top & you have no moment from the pivot point to raise the keel easily, too far from the top the cable comes out of the hull at too much of an angle. I think mine was about 1 ft below the pivot pin hole.
