Re: SJ23 - Replace lift cable

The eye strap should be exposed with the board down, the screws that hold it may be as much as 3/4" long, and are square drive.You might be able to replace it on the trailer by cutting the tube at the floor level, and them re glassing it when you are through.

I don't think it can be done underwater. Mine is broken now and I plan to have the boat hauled so I can repair it. It has been broken since last fall and I tried to dive down and reconnect it and found it impossible to stay in the waters of Puget Sound long enough to do it. But I also think the clip was not exposed with the board down.

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
