Re: Seafarer 34 centerboard swing keel removal?!

71,

On the Clipper Marine trailer sailors, If the pin is removed the winch cable will lower the keel down level to service. Of course that assumes the cable is good.

Re: topsail island

Sorry guys,

My boat is a clipper marine 21' swing keel. So shallow is not a problem. The rental has boat dock but I see that there is a long channel on the shore side of Island. Thanks again....

motor

Coaster,

I have 4 hp mariner on my 21 ft, weighs 1400 lbs and rarely need much throttle. I don't sail in the sea, but can't imagine it wouldn't be enough if prop stayed in water.

good luck...
