Tech/Engineering - Ships, Sailing, Maritime / centerboards (Zentralschwert)
English term or phrase: kick-up/swing centreboard
Sorry again, no context available except for the heading - OPTIONS.
Centreboard is a type of keel called Zentralschwert. Meine Frage hier ist: wie drücke ich den Unterschied zwischen "kick-up" und "swing" aus? Es ist klar, daß man das Ding sowohl "hochtreten" kann als auch überschwenken (oder so ähnlich)- Besitzt dieses Zentralschwert BEIDE Funktionen gleichzeitig oder ist eher eine Auswahl gemeint? Danke im voraus!
