If you have a Soverel 28 I would like to know how your centerboard is set.
Does it hang from a small shackle and cable when in the up position?
Does a centerboard claw rest on a pin in the keel in the down position?

I am having LOTS of centerboard issues; nearly sunk my Soverel 28 and ended up costing me close to $10,000.
Any Soverel 28 info or advice would be greatly appreciated.

There is a Soverel design group on Yahoo (Sovdesign).
They may be able to help you with the center board rigging.

My boat, and I think most of the 28's, have a pin (I suspect bronze) that goes through the hull, and the centerboard pivots on that. Near the end of the board a shackle attached to the pennant (stainless steel wire) hoists and lowers the board. SOME boards are bronze, but mine is a fiberglass with lead shot inside the glass for weight. I don't know what the claw would be.
