Re: Irwin 34 Centerboard Cable

Hi Evpier,
I also have an Irwin Citation 34. I'm in about the same situation as you, except mine hasn't broken yet. I'm expecting it though. There are a few places who still do the wire to rope splices. Wish I had them right at hand. I'll poke around and see if I can find the websites this weekend. The pin in the keel is sure to be loose too. Good time to do the whole thing, clean up the center board and such. I'm worried the wire may have worn away the tube down near the keel. I'll check back soon.
