Ah, I see what you're saying, good tip! I'm thinking it would be easier to just make a new dagger board? Maybe refurbish the original and see how it sails. I guess if it seems to be problematic I'll make a fresh one. My dad even has some leftover mahogany form when he restored his 420 a few years ago. I just hate losing original stuff. Shoot, I'd re-use the brass screws if they were in better shape! Reading through that thread now. Wow, what a project!
