Re: Daggerboard Case Resizing

Thanks Colin, Just the sort of thing I was looking for.

Thanks!

Daggerboard Case Resizing

Hi All,

I need to retrofit a high aspect board to my boat has anyone got any hints and tips?

We have two different boards and would be handy to use both if possible.

Has anyone made cassettes or do we just go for one or the other?

Thanks!

14 Mast

Hi there,
