2) I would try & fix it! Use the old parts that you can't buy & buy new parts that match the old rusted ones, ie shop around
3)I lay the mast down AFT but built a collapsible crutch that sits in the cockpit drain holes & attaches to the transom on the table fitting. Make sure the sliding plate under the boom on the mast is all the way up close to where the boom attaches, and also make sure the side stays are not jammed up but pointing AFT.
What is the board and winch trick?? Post a link if you can.

any idea how the stainless steel wire attaches to the swing keel it's on the trailer no way to see it .
is it treaded through the keel and then held on with cable clamps ?
does it have a loop crimped on and attached with a shackle ?
i am going to take the basic keel boat course in jan . so my boat wont be in the water before that , it's doubtful i will be getting in the water to look at it unless its a emergency .

|makenmend||welcome,fairly new here myself, still some work to do before I can launch. On the winch,mine dosn't look at all special, I think a small regular boat winch would be more than adequate. Does your centre board raise/lower OK with the 1/4'' rope ? if so I would be inclined to replace it anually or go back to stainless wire.|
