  • 221 customer center board cushion

    Been a while since I posted, so here it goes I have a 221 and had custom cushions made for bow, including a centerboard with cushion to cover the V part. It works great and everything stays intact until no one is sitting on the center cushion and we start to hit some waves. The board/cushion will come lose and ends up tilting with one side falling into the open center. Is there a known way to secure the centerboard to stop it from popping off?

    Thanks for any help!

    Always liked the idea of turning it into a table with a hydraulic mount to the fish box lid that would be removable from the base. But im sure someone will be on with a better idea

    I would think some sort of latch would be the best bet but would have to think more about placement

      Hi John, Thanks for the response and idea. I think the latch idea is good (hydraulics great, but too much time and probably out of price range. Trying to find someone that has already done this so it's not a hack. Will report back if I find an answer outside of the forum. Thx, Patrick

        A table mount would be very cool. Back in the old days, they would just mount eye straps - one on the bottom of the centerboard and then one on the vertical part of the seat - then use a bungee. put the bungee through the eye strap on the centerboard, tie a not, then leave the hook on the other end and hook to the eye strap on the boat. I will hold it down in *almost* all conditions.

          Thank you! This sounds like it will work. I will give it a try and let you know the results in the next few weeks. PJM
