The rubber stopper described by mercs is the best solution to your problem. There are several boats that use this method.

The weight is not the important thing here. The centreboard decreases the tendency of the boat to drift to leeward and also changes the dynamics of the water flow under the boat. Both of these should contribute to improved handling, especially when pointing up.

Leith (rhymes with teeth) is the port of the City of Edinburgh in Scotland. A Leither is someone who comes from that area.

I must go down to the sea again, to the lonely sea and the sky - I left my shoes and socks there, I wonder if they're dry?

The rubber stopper method is also commonly used in fountains to plug the bowl and run the power cord for the pump down through the pedestal.

How big is the tube? a lot of times rubber stoppers like Chris talked about, ie ones for fountains can be found pre cut with a hole from the mold. In your case, one that is drilled and cut by yourself, will work find, but in fountain situation, the premolded ones would be better vs making your own.

Most of the of the ones made for a fountain, are in the 3/4-1" diam in size. I would imagine that the hole for a CB wire is a bit smaller. But could be wrong here.

Is it possible to place a winch on cabin top outside? Just extend the tube all way up through the top, and seal everything around the centerboard.

On my boat line for a board exits at cabin top. Inside tube looks like just a post, a handle.

The pipe is about 2" Couldn't extend the pipe up as it would block the companionway door. In the spring I will try the stopper idea.
