Re: Daysailer centerboard?
Kind of late to reply to this I guess, but here is the layout of hte 1971-73 DS II centerbord controls in pic 1, 1974-early 77 in pic 2, and 1977-85 in pic 3. The last one should also match tthe DS III setup.
The cable coming out of the hole in the cuddy and controled by a line run from an eyestrap to one side of the maststep, through a block on the cable end and then through another block on the other side of the maststep. is suposed to raise hte CB, the cable coming out od the top of the CB trunk out in the cockpit is to lower the CB. It is possible that a previous owner reversed the cables?
I doubt you were sailing with the CB retracted all the time, with no CB down, you would not be able to make any progress to windward and in fact the boat becomes hard to steer at all without having at least about 1/3 of the CB exposed, even under power.
