Daysailer centerboard?

I have 2 different diagrams showing which cable/rope raises and lowers the centerboard. My boat is a 1972 Daysailer, and I've been pulling the rope that extends from the cuddy cabin to lower the board. But last week, water came rushing out in the cuddy, so I yanked on the cable which is on the cb trunk and the gushing stopped. I may have been sailing this boat with the board up when I thought it was down. Anyone out there who can offer advice?

Welcome to sailnut!

Sounds fairly likely that you were sailing with the center board up when you thought it was down.
No worries though. Figure out how the center board is set up and see if you can notice the difference when you use it.

Yup, that's what I thought. When we haul it for the winter, I'll be able to see which way is up, which way is down.
