    This seems the best to me as well, the other option reminds me of my buddy in Kentucky, he bought a Toyota pick up and the ride was too harsh for him so he 1/2 filled the bed with sand bags.

    Hey Joe,
    Is this the centerboard you want us to make? I found this picture on your flickr site. This is confusing. Are you arguing for or against steel/wood laminated centerboards? ;)

    2016 Update on the Weighted centerboard.
    The boat has been in water since '09 and there are no delamination or other issues with centerboard. There are a few barnacles on boat and cb.

    I am moving to a Catalina 16.5K or C. Which means I will have to do another weighted centerboard if I do not get the keel. The 14.6 has become too small for 5 passengers. I will use copper core this time to prevent rust. You cannot cover Stainless unless you want it to weep and rust.
