Re: Seafarer 34 centerboard swing keel removal?!


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.

good luck

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...
