So... the extending of the length on the old style daggarboard to 44" has been a great success. Boat sails better and the daggerboard chatter is now gone too.... maybe better fit in trunk, which I worked on...or better foil shape. Who knows...?? but I'm not going to complain. So... looking to extend even MORE to 50" with the more "modern" bottom edge foil shape. Something like in the pictures. I will probably embed some steel rods to help splice all this together as well. But wondering what I might gain (or lose) by doing so. I'm ok with a longer board with my normal boom height, and my sailing waters are typically deep enough too. I realize totally yanking the board out will be a little more effort, but I'm REALLY looking to get better/higher tacking angles and the least amount of sideways slip I can get. I sometimes will sacrifice pointing for falling off and power...just to make a destination (like my boat ramp ...up wind!). So... those with a current fiberglass (or anyone else) board... would you like it longer if you could? Lastly, I might add some of the scrap lead pieces I have laying around in the "extension"...to add as much weight as possible down low.... but that's still undecided. It would be easy to do. (and double lastly...) What thoughts are there with improving on with the rudder as well? 100 degree angle VS 120 and a deeper blade?
