    Hi. I just inherited my dads boat. A Capri 14.2. The bungee that Keeps the centerboard down or let's it come up when too shallow....this broke from age. How do I replace? Does it have a specific name. I still have the clip but don't see where on the mainsail cleat it's supposed to attach. Does anyone have a picture of this apparatus? Thank you

    IMG_3716.JPG IMG_3717.JPG The bungee attaches to the centerboard then goes to the stern where there's an eye for the clip to attach. You can simply buy some bulk bungee at a hardware store, attach one end to the board, the other to the brass clip to attach to the eye at the stern.

    Mine is the same as above. The bungy on mine is ( loose) 6' long including room to make the knots. So that it does not stretch out too quickly, I unclip it off the transom when on the trailer.
