Re: Lightning centerboard extraction

I don't know about trailer extraction but with some inguinuity you can do it. You need some jacks to raise the keel a few inches above the width of the center board. I take mine out periodicaly and alway's tell the yard to leave me sitting high enough to wiggle the CB out. there is nothing one man can't do with come alongs, jacks, patients and fore thought.
