1987 DS III Centerboard Rigging

Postby rickythree » Sat Apr 02, 2011 5:06 pm

Can someone forward a sketch of how the centerboard lines are rigged inside the cuddy and cockpit? The lines are coming up through the trunk O.K. but I can't see what O'Day intended up above.

This is from the DS II manual on this page... I'm not sure how the 3 is rigged but maybe its similar?

The fiberglass centerboard is held in the centerboard trunk with a stainless steel bolt on which it pivots. On the top of the centerboard there are two adjustment pendants—one running forward which exits at the forward end of the trunk and is used to raise the centerboard, and the second which exits
on top of the forward end of the trunk and is used to lower the centerboard. *Watch these pendants for wear and replace when necessary by removing the centerboard bolt and lowering the centerboard out of the trunk. Cleat pendants to maintain proper centerboard position, except do not cleat aft
pendant when sailing in shallow water. See fig. 6.
