Cleat for centerboard control line is circled

Centerboard Control Line

The control line is cleated at the forward end of the centerboard trunk where it can be easily reached by the crew

Simple Enhancement

Add a small upright block near the mainsheet pedestal and run the free end of the control line through it. Now, either the skipper or the crew can easily put the centerboard up or down—pulling the line behind the block to raise the centerboard and releasing it by pulling up in front of the block so that it pulls out of the forward cleat
