Tartan 34 Center Boards

I an looking at a Tartan 34 "for sale" that has had her CB fiberglassed closed to the "up" position. I''m wondering if there are any T34 owners who could comment on this.
Have other T34 owners pondered doing this or actually done this? I understand the the CB on this model is problematic. I''m wondering if other T34 owners, fearing problems with the CB, avoid lowering it and therefore can comment on the sailing characterics w/o the CB.

Tartan 34 Center Boards

I sail my Tartan 34 (hull # 451)on Nantucket Sound, Cape Cod, Massachusetts in all kinds of weather, mostly windy in the 15-20 knot range. I rarely put the board down. She won''t point as well with board up but I''m not racing her. One of the reasons I keep the board up is that there are some shallow areas where I sail and I figure I''d rather be drawing 4 foot instead of 8. Also if you run aground with board down I think a lot of bad things might happen (the board is locked in position when down and will not swing up on its own.
Just a side note about the Tartan 34... she''s stiff (have never buried the rail) even on those 15-25 knot days as long as Main and Genoa were properly reefed. She''s a
good strong boat that turns heads everywhere
