I ran aground and damaged my daggerboard. Boat did not take on water and the daggerboard trunk seems to be okay. Damage seems to be limited to the board itself. Is there any way I can repair this? Is it a bad idea to try and use it in it's current condition?
Wow. I was impatient and started the repair before I saw either of your posts. I may have to repair again in a couple of seasons, but for now I sanded back a bit more and applied fiberglass. Guess I'll see how that works.
So I figured out why the sunfish was getting so much water when I sailed. Huge cracking on underside of bow. Question, do i need to keep sanding or have I gone far enough? The very front seems to be in good enough shape. Or do I need to sand it out and remove it? And do I just put new fiberglass...
I am getting ready to replace my old rope traveller with a wire one, I think both the plain wire and the one with the loop are class legal. Does anyone have a preference for one or the other, and why?
Try the first option. I did that with my boat last winter, with just two inspection ports, one up near the splashguard and one behind the cockpit. Like yours, I'm not sure what it weighed, but since two of us had trouble carrying it, 300 sounds about right. It's amazing how much lighter it is...
