Any good ideas on how to lower and raise the centerboard on the TI from the back seat, short of climbing over to do so... THanks

I'm assuming by the lack of response here, how you're doing it is the best and/or only way to lower it. :|

bosab,

I get up to lower the center board but use my paddle to push it back up.

I have thought about getting a small adjustable boat hook that could be used to raise and lower it & could be rigged to use as a whisker pole to hold the sail out when running downwind.
