Replying to:RL24 Locking a swing keel
I am sailing an RL24 with a swing keel and am interested to know if anyone has arranged a locking device for the keel. In my case the keel is raised by a cable attached to its trailing edge about 150mm from its heel. The cable is connected to a winch at the aft end of the case. I'm reasonable satisfied with this arrangement and have been considering how I might lock it down to increase the chance of self-righting in the event of a capsize. What have others devised?
