of my daggerboards got stuck in the "Down" position. I don't know what the heck happened because this has never occured before, but it took just about every ounce of strength and quite a bit of time (while weaving around other boats) to get the damn thing raised. Not fun when you're out on your own and you realize at some point you're going to have to return to the beach!
Have you guys ever had this happen? Suggested remedies? FYI I do have rubber "spacers" glued into the topside dagger well openings (presumably to improve/tighten the fit??).
