30' Irwin Centerboard info

Hey Everyone,
I was hoping someone might know about the operation of a 30' Irwin Citation centerboard. I have a deck wench with a line that runs down through a pipe from the deck to the keel and that's all I can see. The Irwin website has some info that shows linkage and a stuffing box with a rod etc. which I have been unable to find. I thought maybe someone might have some advice. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi GG. You didn't say what your problem is. I have a 34' Citation with a system as you discribe. As far as I know, you do not have the system discribed on the Irwin website. It is a simple pennant line that goes through the tube to the centerboard. No packing gland and rod. Which suits me fine. I prefer what we have as it's one less stuffing box to worry about.
