Centerboard sticks

My centerboard sticks when in the full up position (ie. when trailering). Any suggestions? I have an O'day 192 if that matters. TY!

Is there any way you can completely drop it and look up in the trunk? It could be a few different things.

You might have better response if you post this in the O'Day forum. Some people never look past brand specific on SBO.

Thanks GSBNY,
I did jack the boat up on the trailer enough to drop the centerboard. No obvious problem. Hand sanded the centerboard and locker - but still sticks (but only at near full up position).

Same problem here . Very small zebra mussels . Launch swim underneath to free centerboard , and use a toilet brush . I's really not that hard

If you already cleaned up the board and the trunk then check out the line and the tube it goes through before the deck. It’s not an ideal system with those hard turns but there isn’t really a way to modify that to be easier.
