Swing keel pivot question
Having now read your excellent posts and viewed your excellent pics of dropping the centre-board, I have a few questions. How did you get the cover off the pivot pin and how did you get the pivot pin out? Was it easy? Looking at my DS22 on the trailer, I can't even see where the pivot pin is. So I'm guessing its buried beneath a lot of paint!
Looking down into the centre-board casing it seems that my centre-board is hoisted up and down with a nylon strap. Not sure if that is bad thing or not. There is no winch to turn either, just a rope that you pull through a cam cleat.
I probably should overhaul the lot.
