Ben Sorry for taking so long to reply - I just can't figure out how post photos/images.

Anyone help with that?

This is the Boon system, I would run the bungee under the thwart instead of through the cutout slots.

Thanks Tim, that would be great, I have been looking at a friends Boon boat at the club, it looks very good, so I think I may well have a go at that, but would like to see yours first?

Many thanks,

Ben, Hi I'm a new Solo owner and bought a 2007 Speed. It has a "strange" arrangement for the Centreboard ending in a Bungee to keep it all tensioned. Seems to work. Centreboard stays exactly where I put it.

I'd need to go to the club to get a photo. If your interested I'll post one in a few days?

I remember my Severns having a bunjee cord with an adjustable cleat that went round the back of the mansheet jammer to act as a downhaul with the friction damper adjusted. The modern uphaul seems to go from centreboard to blocks off a strop off the mast step and then out to cleats out by the others, I would be interested to hear how you get the board down after a capsize!
