I noticed while working on my TI today, that the Centerboard Knob was loose and could fall off, possibly overboard. I pried off the cap, removed the screw, added Loctite and screwed it back in tight.

I intentionally loosened mine to facilitate single handing from the rear seat. There's a spring that bolt compresses. I use my whisker pole/tiller extension to lift the knob to raise and lower the centerboard from the rear seat.

I found each time I moved the centerboard, it unscrewed a little bit more.
