I'm looking for two new center boards and a new front center hatch cover on the cabin. Thanks, Charlie

I had the boat moored on Cape Cod Bay. Low tide takes the water out two miles. The transition is the killer because the boat gets bounced around. The knot in the centerboard line hopped out and released the centerboard. I lost a third of the board! I need a new or used centerboard. If I can't find that I need to repair what I have. Does anyone have any ideas to make the centerboard more durable and less likely to hang up in and out of the well? Are there any stremlined wiper systems out there that will help to keep rocks, shells and sand from wedging inbetween the board and the well?

Small pebbles will get stuck in those dagger board pockets. :shock:

I use a long BBQ spatula to knock them loose. The handle is not very long but the spatula part is really really long. :) .

I would fabricate two new ones out of mahogany wood if the original fiberglass ones are not available. Be sure to cover the wood with tinted white fiberglass resin to blend in better.

I made a pair of rudders maybe 12 years ago and they turn out great. : :D

I should have made two pairs of rudders so I would have an extra set........hindsight is 20/20....

I wouldn't leave my boat in the water.......................... :roll:
