    The centre board snubber.

    Who designed these? The v cut in them nowhere near matches the trailing edge of the board, they split within days and they're too short to adjust forward properly.

    In a world full of chinese plastic you'd think they'd come up with a cheap effective part. Forget sails, forget blocks, someone needs to address the snubber issue.

    Do you reckon you can get them to make it thickest right up to the trailing edge. That one looks like it's rebated just where the wear and tear is going to be the most. If not, the body needs to be longer.

    Mind you, it looks like that carbon inpregnated plastic stuff. Is it harder?



    Don't tell me there are already 50,000,000 of these stored your garage.

    Same here, always been fine for me, just learn to adjust it correctly



    Thats what I thought.

    Hows it work Tracy? Have you tried it? I have mixed feelings, but I'll try anything.

    If you're going through that many snubbers, (12 a year) then you should have also worn a hole through the front of your dagger board trunk. Which, IMHO would be a much bigger issue.

    If you have the "tape" in yout trunk that might be part of your problem. I understand the tape makes the slot very slick and the board does not like to hold a position.

    Nope no tape or wear. Just bung snubbers.

    Should be some good political mileage in this. Blow the whole scam wide open.
