    Thanks. I do feel like I am making progress. Thanks for the note about the centerboard systems. I will look into that. Would love a swivel cleat on the main, but I don't think it is really worth it. Rather spend that time sailing... I do think I will change to a dual car travel system...

    470 Main Halyard Lock Necessary for Recreational Sailing?

    Hi, I have on old 470 that I am putting back together. Originally it looks like it had a main halyard lock. My question is whether there is the need to try to resurrect this lock for recreational sailing (the boat is way past its racing days) or can I just rivet a cleat to the bottom of the...
