Re: Removing Centerboard in Winter

when i pulled my board off in the water it did not just drop out i had to really work to get it out of there , what you have to worry about is if your boat does not get over the keel board on the trailer and the board its jammed in the trailer frame like mine could not get it to go either way ,stuck on the ramp end up dragging it out of the water and cutting the damaged section off .
have been sailing without it since.
i think mine weighed about 50 lbs , i tied arope around several times and tied the rope to the trailer so i could not lose it when it came off .
