Re: Centreboard Trismus type vs fixed keel architecture

Re: Centreboard Trismus type vs fixed keel architecture
Hi
I have been the happy owner the last year of a Triswood 35. At a mooring its swingkeel has been pushed up by a big coral and sailing upwind became allmost impossible. I succeeded to pull the centre board back down by attaching it to a wreck under my boat and wait for the flood. The keel is impossible to pull back up by the winch, but now she sails nice upwind again...

Re: Centreboard Trismus type vs fixed keel architecture

Some very interesting stuff on here about the boats, thanks.

Matt, hopefully you find a good solution to the inside of the case. I guess this and Vortecs stories highlight the downsides of centreboards and the added complexity and maintenance. But then I remember seeing how easy it was to dry out a lift keeler to do underwater work that in other ways makes up for this.

Cook did his voyage between 1768 & 1771... Also, when I try to google "poms" the only answer was an Amazon necklace with a monohull on it ? Make me less ignorant: What are your "poms" ??? Thanks
