Sorry.  I've never even seen a Skunk. (the boat I mean, of course). I have it listed as having a centerboard (pivoting on a pin) with the trunk sealed at the top. .  But, if it is, in fact a daggerboard, and it's tight enough in the trunk, just friction is often enough to hold it up or down. On a Sunfish, there is a metal clip screwed on to the side of the board to hold it in the down position. Maybe if you had a picture or something, someone could give better advice than this.
Good luck with it.

I own a skunk and the only thing it has is a pivoted daggerboard...There is a drawstring on it with the bottom of the daggerboard as one end and a hole in the top of the D/B housing for the other end...I need mast, boom, sail, tiller and rudder...R. West

Long live the skunk!
Recently pulled from its 12 year resting place in a pile of leaves and pine needles. A great little boat!

Very nice photo. Thanks! I might even use it for my 'Skunk' record if you don't mind.
I should a also add that the term 'daggerboard' means that it raises and lowers vertically only. A centerboard 'pivots'.

Sure thing, thats fine sonosail. If other skunk owners have any questions, I have her properly rigged ( I think) and have more shots if necessary. I purchased this one from an older couple who owned one previously, but lost her on the rocks in a storm. However, they were so fond of her, they went back to the builder for another.
Again, a great little boat.
