centerboard pounds and makes god awful noise!
I have a 37 irwin cc ketch with centerboard. It raises and lowers fine, but when it is in the lowered position the board seems to rise up and pound back down. It is such a bad sound we are scared to use it. it sounds like it gets to its lowest position and slams into the housing it fits in. The boat is out of the water. Today im having it lifted and lowering the board to see what things look like, but I cant imagine ill see much. Are there bushings that might be worn away, or is there supposed to be a way to lock the board into position?
