Re: SJ23 - Replace lift cable

I replaced mine out of the water, but this information may still apply.  The cable is attached through a stainless loop on the centerboard, and is then crimped.  It had to be cut to remove and then replaced.  Hope this helps...Dick

Subject: SJ23 - Replace lift cable
This question is directed to those people who have replaced their
centreboard lift cable while the boat is floating. It is just about time
to replace mine and I have to consider my options. I have always thought
that the cable stayed inside the centreboard trunk while the board is
down, but I'm not sure. Hence the following questions.
Q1 - Is it possible (by diving under the boat) to access the small clip
that attaches to the centreboard while the boat is floating? -
Q2 - If the clip is below the hull (outside the trunk), how far from the
hull is it? -
Q3 - Which tools did you use while underwater? -
Kind Regards
