It's like this

Just fix the one block to the deck (the one closer to you) and attach the second one to the rope or wire pulling the drop keel.

Another picture for idea (it has more blocks on it): http://i274.photobucket.com/albums/j...2/IMGP0095.jpg

Re: O'Day 30 Swing Keel Rigging

Hello! This is my first post on sailnet so here I go? I have a 1980 Oday 30 win a CB. It too has the line over the cabin and a Kleet to tie off. It isn't very difficult to retract because as you have read it is a neutral balance. Maybe barnacles are the problem. The guy who dives on all the sailboats by me I. The Long Island Sound says that the barnacles can build up and almost make it impossible to retract. He said he manufactured a long angled rod to get up I side the keel and clear the unit. Good luck!

rustyballast wescarroll,

I finally added the block and rigged as you suggested and it works perfect.

Thanks

rustyballast wescarroll,

Thanks. This makes sense and will rig accordingly. Called Rudy at D&R and he indicated that it should not require such effort to lift. The swing keel weighs about 300 lbs but due to position should not be so difficult to lift.

wescarroll The line from the centerboard ends in a shackle attached to the dead end of a block. A line anchored on the deck loops through the block, back to a cleat next to the anchor point, making for a 2/1 purchase.
