I ran my boat up on a reef last fall and messed up one of my dagger boards. Long story, and while I knew about the reef and usually avoided it, evidently Hurricane Sandy had displaced the warning markers a couple of hundred yards. I failed to take this into account (Ouch!!). Nobody was hurt but the collision stopped the boat dead and dumped two of my passengers over the front crossbar. Below is the end result. Now, before any of you take pity on me, my friend snapped both of his Tiger dagger boards clean off on the same reef. Talk about an expensive replacement!
Anyways, with sailing season fast approaching I need to fix the board. I searched around YouTube and stumbled across this excellent step-by-step video.....https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nqDHK0VcKTE
Does that sound about right? Here are the pictures...
Also note the moon-shaped damage about 18" up on the trailing edge, probably from the lower well.....
Lastly, for my cat sailing friends, Gill has some nice clearance deals going right now (e.g., $39 spray tops and bouyancy aids)...http://gillna.com/c-90-clearance-dinghy.aspx
